Taken from a small boat as I was taken around the backwaters of the Tortuguero River system on Costa Rica’s NE coast (Caribbean Sea). This female was with another in bushes low down to the water’s edge. To get this close is pretty unique.

Taken on December 8 2011
Tortuguero, Costa Rica

    Up close and serious! Indeed. One very serious bird. BTW, great photo. Crystal clear. I can almost count the nose hairs, ha!
