I wish I was out for a hike here right now, well maybe in the morning, since I am sure it is dark there as I write this.

Emu chicks have amazing coloration. I am not sure whether it serves as camouflage in places with a lot of light and dark patches or it is warning coloration because the father who is always close by can easily kill most the the predators likely to pursue the chick. I know I am not getting between the chick and dad.

I was looking for frogs and found these guys (there were several in the rolled up leaf). Surprises like this can make your day. I would have liked to have found more frogs in Costa Rica, but this was a thrill, too.

Making someplace cozy. We are in the process of buying a new house, and fixing some long standing issues with our current house in preparation for selling. Sometimes I wish we could wander a bit more making a place close to where we want to be.
