Tiger rat snake hunting a rodent with babies! At first we couldn't see a prey item visible but as the snake investigated a cluster of leaves, something startled and dropped from the tree in front of us...a rodent with offspring clinging to its rear darted past us and scaled the nearest tree, i ba...
Squirrel monkey mom and baby. Cool little scene I filmed of a squirrel monkey coaxing her reluctant baby off her back. The little one was clearly not happy to be away from mom and was very vocal about it! The female, along with several other squirrel monkeys, were actively hunting/foraging for fo...
Two realities for two tamanduas (anteaters). It's easy to post the picturesque but it often does not provide a full representation of reality.Wherever roads exist, the toll on wildlife is inevitable. Wildlife road mortality is not isolated to a single country, it's a product of our global civiliz...
Spider monkeys know the true meaning of hanging around as this curious (and itchy) individual demonstrated by using its prehensile tail to freely hang from a branch. These acrobatic primates play a vital role in the rainforest ecosystem by dispersing seeds through their . Unfortunately they are e...
Cranky Crocodile! The dry season in the Guanacaste region of Costa Rica finds American crocodiles concentrated in the last remaining sources of water. Crocs for the most part will tolerate the presence of other crocs, however, bigger individuals are more dominant and will fend off other crocs fro...
Curious Parrot Snake We observed this parrot snake hunting for sleeping frogs that take shelter under palm leaves during the day. Once it spotted us, the snake attempted to conceal itself and slithered along with little swaying motions until it was out of view. Costa Rica #nature #wildlifephoto...

Filming toucans in A few seconds of footage took several hours to get, as I waited for a pair of Yellow-throated Toucans to return to their nest. Is the effort worth it?......always! #naturephotography #nature #wildlifephotography #wildlife #birdsofcostarica #toucan #animals #birds

Tent-making Bats For the past week the team and I have been exploring the @rionuevo_naturereserve located in the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica. The reserve currently stands as an island of rich biodiversity surrounded by a sea of private agricultural land and palm oil plantations. @jimcordoba of t...
Granular Poison Frog Always a pleasure finding these little gems of the rainforest. Filming them always proves challenging, as their tiny size, erratic movements, and tendency to reside in areas of lower light among vegetation puts any autofocusing system to the test. You finally set the tripod ...
The Jabiru Stork another iconic denezin of the Pantanal. These impressive avian dinosaurs can stand as tall as 5ft and have 9ft wingspans. @thetrentunderwood and I enjoyed any opportunity to film them as they confidently hunted in the shallows. With @biodiverse_brazil_tours #nature #wildlifephot...
