Rain season will soon be in full swing and the weather has already shifted for us here on the coast. The overcast sky and ocean breeze is a welcome relief from the super hot dry season we’ve had this year. As soon as the first rains come the animals are everywhere. Our property is full of lush bushes and mature trees so we get lots of wildlife visiting daily. Monkeys, toucans, parrots, mot mots, armadillos, white-nosed coatis, lizards, it’s like the jungle was sleeping and it just woke up. This is my absolute favorite time of year in Costa Rica. All of the pictures below were taken in our yard, except the flower which was just up the road.
Each day around 6am the squawking of the scarlet macaws wake me. (How the hubby sleeps through it all I do not know!) Sometimes I stay in bed but most times I run out there with my charged and ready camera, crusty eyed and hopeful. Today was a good day. They chose a small almond tree in a neighbors yard and I was fully prepared to ask forgiveness for trespassing. ;)
