This is our last day on the resort, and we were just on our way back from breakfast at Cafe del Lago when we were greeted by lots of Kiskadees. Of course I did not have my telephoto lens mounted!
By the time I had my lens swapped, they were all gone. Total silence. We decided to hangout and wait for few minutes hoping they come back. 5 minutes past. 10 minutes. By about 20 minutes, bird activity came back again! Chachalakas, mangrove verios, a mocking bird, kiskadees, jays, and a very deep-red bird that I did not recognize (to my dismay, was not able to take a good shot at that). However, we were complimented by a Mangrove Verio that was actually feeding on an insect - and, she was just right in my line of sight. Got her frame by frame!
That was an awesome treat to our last day at the resort.
We love nature but we really never had bothered to take the time to slow down, stop and observe. All we did before was see and go. This recent opportunity to force ourselves to "slow down, stop and observe" really widened our view of life. Nature in life. Life in nature. We can then bask in the light of nature's beauty, its perfection! Enables us to ponder, reflect and appreciate life more than ever before!
