The Neighborhood

Around Blue River Resort 2016-02-12 2

In and around Blue River Resort in northwest Costa Rica. This is a selection of what I shot on Friday; many more on Flickr.  

That insect below is a bullet ant, so-called because its sting hurts so badly people feel like they have been shot.

Even in paradise there are some stingy experiences.

Note to self: avoid the bullet ants.
