|This was taken within the Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve. It gives an idea of how densely forested the canopy is. A glimpse of sky like this is rare.|
|This is a glass wing butterfly in the Monteverde Butterfly Garden.|
The Monteverde Butterfly Garden also has other specimens such as these leaf winged katydids on display. Genetics determine how each bug will mimic leaves in different states of decay, disease, etc.
|This is the start of the canopy tour. You climb up the inside of a hollow strangler fig to a platform and swing on a cable through the trees.|
|Here is where you come out of the fig and onto the platform.|
