Costa Rican Adventures
[08/02/17] There are 2 spots left for the February 2018 Costa Rica Tour. Who wants to go to the tropics next February?
Although it's unfortunate that Rikk Flohr cannot join us for the Costa Rica photography tour, I'm delighted to report that Jeff Morgan from Isle of Wight in England will be our professional photography instructor on the 2018 tour. Jeff previously accompanied us in 2008, was a featured presenter during TCACCC Spring Break last year and has been running workshops in Europe. More information about his impressive qualifications can be found at http://www.elmstudio.com/about/index.htm
We are limiting the tour to 6 participants in 2018 for an unforgettable photographic experience. Visit www.worldesignsphoto.com for more information.
[06/28/17] Unfortunately Rikk Flohr is unable to join us for the February 15-22, 2018 tour. Basic photography instruction will be provided by Laurie Hernandez. Contact us for more information.
Checking if there is enough interest to run another photography tour to Costa Rica. Tentative dates are February 15-22, 2018. Looking for 6-8 participants. You might even see a few of the mammals we saw during the 2017 tour. Rikk Flohr will be the photography instructor.
A collared aracari is a member of the toucan family but less common than the Fruit Loops variety.
Here's a shot from our Feb. 2017 tour. The red-eyed green tree frog is as iconic to Costa Rica as a toucan.
It is estimated there are 1000-3000 Great Green Macaws in the wild. During our tour, we heard their loud squawk approaching as we walked across a suspension bridge hanging over the Sarapiqui River. This is one lucky shot.
For more information on the endangered macaws, check out https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_green_macaw
Here's an Emerald Basilisk Lizard spotted during our boat ride down the Sarapiqui River. When small, these prehistoric-looking lizards can run on top of the water earning them the name "Jesus Christ lizard".
