Sometimes, when we are in a special, exotic place that is full of wildlife, it is hard to concentrate on the incredible flora that is all around. These are some pictures from Costa Rica which highlight just that - the incredible variety of the flora. The first two are from the rainforest, and taken "au naturelle" within their natural habitat. The next two are from the gardens, just normal gardens, and represent some majestic use of the normal plants within reach. The third and fourth pictures are representative of the wild plants that grow around in the different environments. And the last one is - I don't know, I've never seen it before or since. It was just "sitting pretty," waiting for someone to take its picture.
