Postcard from Costa Rica


Walking through the rainforest at night leads to many surprises.  I went on a night hike with a naturalist guide and his ten-year-old son, who easily caught tiny frogs before the rest of us recognized their whereabouts.  We were searching for frogs, in fact, and I searched for small snakes in each bromeliad I passed, but what we found was this lizard and another just like it, the two resting on a vine that hung from the canopy.  When you don your headlamp and head out to the trail, there is much more beauty to be found than just the stars above you.
