Strange Creatures Abound in Ojochal, Costa Rica - Romeo's Creature Obsession Magnified
Romeo's obsession and skill in photography has become one of his main hobbies the past couple of years - and he also LOVES bugs, critters, creatures and anything that moves.
Here are his loves combined in a little 'album' of all the amazing wildlife we have seen thus far in Ojochal, near Uvita, Costa Rica.
Enter: The Strange Creature Album
The "Praying Mantis"
Up Close & Personal with the "Praying Mantis"
Moths - from Tiny to Giant Size
Here is the Giant Size (although I know there are even larger ones) - this one is the size of my palm:
Moths as beautiful as butterflies:
Look at that cute fuzzy face...
To the teeny tiny kind:
The "Walking Stick" Bug
- yes, this is not a stick...this is a BUG -
We didn't know what this was - but it turned out to be a Moth Cocoon which took about two weeks to hatch (is that the right term?) and a beautiful Moth emerged...
The Moth that emerged:
There are tons of Geckos everywhere as well - inside, outside - they are usually a very pale colour and quite small, but we found this larger one that had a beautiful dark pattern:
And a ton of frogs and toads!
I will end it with this cute little guy:
Hope you enjoyed this album of critters...and no doubt there will be many more we will see...
Just goes to show that there is SOO much in this world - so many things unseen - to all of our senses.
Remember that this life is so full of possibility and there is so much yet to experience!
