From Liberia, the capital of the Guanacaste Province, any tourist guide can tell a visitor how to get to Junquillal Beach. On the way there one can encounter beautiful birds, and snakes.
One driving in a country road I'm always paying attention to birds who may perch themselves just about anywhere. I was lucky the sun was illuminating the bird.
I shot this image from a car as we were approaching the main road coming out of Junquillal Beach. The shot was taken July 2008. Focal length: 210 mm Aperture: F/ 6.3 Exposure Time: 1/400 sec. Hand-held
