Did you know that some hummingbirds are as small as bees? They are the most amazing little creatures, with their ability to fly backwards and flap their wings so fast you can’t see them…
Costa Rica has these beautiful little birds in abundance and this weekend Melody and myself were privileged to be taken out by friends where we saw loads.
It was an early morning start.. breakfast in the hotel had only just started, so I was at least able to get some coffee… the first stop was therefore breakfast in San Jose.. with coffee in a traditional little coffee pot… then on to the national gardens about 2 hours south east. That’s where we saw the hummingbirds… I tried to take pictures, but that’s just not possible with a phone.. they move so fast!
We had a great walk through the forest, where we also saw beautiful woodpeckers.. if you are a bird watcher there was lots there!
After a slightly strenuous walk, we went to a trout farm for lunch.. we gave the fishing a miss.. but ate some very fresh trout freshly caught.
I love seeing and experiencing all these things on my travels. I know I am privileged and blessed that people are willing to show me around.
Below a selection of snaps of the day… minus the hummingbirds… you just have to believe I saw all different kinds!!
To end it all, there were several smaller earthquakes here… the bed shakes. Rather alarming!
