What an amazing morning!
We have been doing a lot of wildlife photography of birds in the mornings during the past two days, and have been thinking about doing bird photos as the next topic for the photos of the day. When two beautiful green parrots joined us during our coffee and gratitude time this morning, we knew it was meant to be. Today’s topic is photos of tropical birds. We have seen a lot of different species of birds like toucans, hummingbirds, woodpeckers, etc. A family of Aracaris just landed in the trees and are hanging out as I am writing this. Yesterday and today some vibrant woodpeckers with yellow and red colors were bouncing around on the trees and pecking away, haha. This morning we watched a bright green parrot couple snuggle with each other. An incredible blue morpho butterfly flew right by us as we were filming the parrots. We have been trying to capture the toucans and aracaris as they swoop down the mountain towards the ocean at high speed. It’s an awesome sight, but they are so fast, and we are practicing and improving our skills at getting them on camera.
Emily made her famous Em Mocha (cacao and coffee combo) with high potency pure dark chocolate cubes and local coffee, and that really gets you going 🙂 Sounds of waves booming off of the rocks from the new south swell and howler monkeys howling in the background, and it was another dreamy Costa Rica morning!
Coffee and gratitude today was a great reminder that we are so fortunate and have so much to be thankful for, including living this lifestyle in this beautiful place, a wonderful birthday celebration for Emily yesterday, and our experience this morning!
