A Bit of the Cloud Forest, Panama

Cloud Forest, Panama

Rich volcanic soil, plenty of moisture and warm temperatures, these ingredients will create a wondrous diversity of life. The image above was taken in the Chiriqui Highlands of Panama.

The small bird is a Red-faced Spinetail, on the ground below a trail of leaf-cutter ants , huge monsters of tress support mosses, epiphytes, wild orchids, long twisting vines, strangler figs, ferns and butterflies,  and a huge host of other wonders.

A visit to these places can capture you and you will want to return again and again.

  1. Took me a while to find the bird but what a beautiful composition like this. I tend to do portrait and never think of doing such a picture, though they are beautiful!

  3. A most beautiful image! Wonderful composition and textures. The tiny Red-faced Spinetail at the lower left corner really enhances the photograph. Lovely work!
