Making Faces

Species: Mantled Howler Monkey | Location: Guanacaste, Costa Rica

We were driving from Guanacaste to Manual Antonio in Costa Rica when the guide saw a troop of mantled howler monkeys in a mango tree on private property. He stopped and asked the owners if we could take pictures. They agreed so we spent almost an hour watching the monkeys. They put on a show! This is just one of the many shots I took during the show.

About The Photographer

I'm a world traveler who has been traveling the globe for the past 15 years, visiting places that are being most impacted by global warming. My initial photography interest was in macros of plants and flowers, but once I obtained a longer lens, I became an avid wildlife photographer. I enjoy visiting off-the-beaten-path places and capturing images of the flora and fauna. I also enjoy sharing these images and experiences with others through my web site and personal presentations.
