My 1st entry for Amazing Nature Contest by @adalger

January 2020 · 2 min read · Limón Province

Hi there my Steemian friends and followers!

As you have probably noticed by now, I love photo contests here on Steem (both participating in them and hosting them too) so when I found out about the Amazing Nature Contest hosted by @adalger, I was excited to join in. As the title of the contest suggests, these contests are about nature/wildlife photography, which is my favorite photography category so I am very happy to submit my first entry today.

As a dedicated nature lover, I always prefer natural places to urban sites when traveling and exploring foreign countries but there is one particular country that will always have a special place in my heart and this country is Costa Rica.

With more than 1/4 of the country´s land area consisting of national parks and protected areas, Costa Rica is a true heaven for every nature lover. As incredible as it sounds, this little Central American country contains as much as 5% of the entire world´s biodiversity, which is a stunning number.

That being said, it comes as no surprise that it was in this amazing country where I took some of my best wildlife photos. Here is a few of them.

Purple Lubber Grasshopper


Keel Billed Toucan


Hermit Crab


Brown Throated Sloth


Saturnid Moth Caterpillar


Sand Dollar


Banana Spider


All of those shots were take by me on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica and its surroundings, mostly in the Cahuita National Park and the Gandoca Manzanillo National Park.
