However the steep sides of the quarry are not the trap for the chamois that they might be for other creatures. At the first sign of threat the chamois are already halfway up the almost sheer cliff faces.</p> The forests of the world are run and organised by ants. Without them our world would be a different place. However they often get over looked. The cloud forest of San Gerardo de Dota just South of San Jose is better known for the symbol of Central American birds, the Quetzal. However these are less easy to photograph and I didn't manage print worth images. However there were many hummingbirds to make up for it. Hummingbirds are every photographers dream bird to photograph. The scaly feathers stand out so well in a photo and getting one in flight is actually easier than you might imagine as they hover quite a lot instead of flying. There are so many birds in Costa Rica that photographing them is just a joy. Find a perch and focus on it, a bird will land in no time. In this case it was a flame coloured tanager. Spending time with spider monkeys in the jungle is a joy. They are just such curious creatures and if you aren't threatening will just watch you while you eat. The forests of Costa Rica are full of hummingbirds. These beautiful feathered creatures are somewhat treasured by the local population and often have sugar water feeders put out for them the way we put out seeds and nuts in Europe. I was hoping for a photo or two of a hummingbird before going to Costa Rica. Just because the photos look effortlessly good. However I got so many that I know know they take no effort at all.
