    Three toed sloth - Tortuguero National Park, Costa Rica

    Greetings!

    Sorry I have not been very active on the forum lately, been very busy at work over the last several months and the weather has been so good in the UK that I have spent every waking hour, outside of work, on the golf course! I endeavor to contribute more in future!

    Anyways, currently writing to you from Tortuguero in Costa Rica where we are taking our two-week holiday this year. Already seen masses of wildlife and only really on day two, but the shooting conditions are a little challenging at times.

    I thought I'd post a pic I took today of a three-toed sloth hanging in the canopy. I love these animals. We were on a small boat about 50 feet below him, but was quite pleased with the outcome of this one...

    Beautiful image of a gorgeous creature... Wish I were with you in Costa Rica.

    The only feed back I can think of is the foliage on the top left side appears a wee bit bright... Looking forward to seeing more photos from Costa Rica.
