Things that go flip flap, flip flap

Blue Morphos are almost impossible to photograph. Once and awhile you see one magically float by and disappear. Just like the story in my last post. But I did catch this little guy hanging around at Hacienda Baru.



This photograph was taken at Pacific Edge in Dominical. Right in front of our cabina. I wonder why one is yellow and one is pink?





























All of these photos were taken on a cold, windy and rainy morning at Selvetura in Costa Rica's Cloud Forest. I've nicknamed it Cold Forest. And for good reason. But it is a beautiful area to hike and see exotic birds. But on this particular day, even the moths were trying to stay dry. So while my husband and I were trying to decide if we should brave the elements and hike, we photographed these diverse creatures. By the way, we never did hike.

Amazing! You have either been blessed with these pictures, or been in the right place at the right time, or you're super talented! (probably all three) :-)

I am envious. I have not yet been lucky enough to photograph a butterfly or dragonfly. Nicely done.
