Costa Rica: Hummingbirds in flight 2/3

(April 15th, 2015)

For this hummingbird, the identification is more difficult. Even its name (Stripe-throated Hermit) does not seem very apparent on the photos. But it’s even worse when you see this little hummingbird in flight and not simply on a computer screen.

You should have no difficulty recognizing this bird from its name: Rufous-tailed Hummingbird.

Basiliscus plumifrons

(April 12th, 2015)

This relatively large lizard is also known as Jesus Christ lizard for its spectacular aptitude to walk on water (or more precisely to run on the surface of water). Its colors (mostly light green with touches of turquoise) are quite astonishing as soon as you put it in bright light.

Once more! Ice-Altitude

(April 6th, 2015)

Yes! I did it again! Here is a new web site I launched recently.

this time, the intent is to share Marion Jonch√®res’ passion for cold, ice, snow and altitude. Here, you will only find extreme sports, high altitude mountaineering, North Pole or South Pole. But this is based on detailed commentaries and spectacular pictures.

I recommend you to go and see Ice-Altitude.com (and don’t hesitate to stop and leave your email to receive her information letter – in French).

Boat-billed heron

(April 2nd, 2015)

Despite its vernacular English name, this is not exactly a heron but a bird of a similar family. A great impressive look, not handsome, but impressive!
