COSTA RICA INSECTS
In January of 2014, we visited Costa Rica. The first week, we stayed at a grand villa on the Pacific Coast. The Villa Mayana was luxurious — both lodge and grounds — but the best thing about it was the incredible insects on the grounds and in the villa's rainforest. An added advantage was, unlike in rainforests, there was a a lot of light to take pictures. As you will see in the photos I took below, "incredible" is an understatement! Some of these insects were found in the gardens, some on the walls of the villa, some on the balconies, some a gift from the villa gardener, a few in the villa's rainforest or villa plantation.
