The Highlight of Monteverde
Resplendent Quetzal … we see both male and female. Well known for their colorful plumage. Their pigment is created by melanin which causes tanning in humans. Known as the National bird of Guatemala. The Quetzals are more numerous in Costa Rica due to the large forestation.
Up Close and Personal
So excited that our guide was able to place my phone on the telescope lens. A fabulous close up view and great phone shots. Better shots than my 35 mm camera with its Zoom Lens.
