One of the wonderful surprises you might run across in the forests of Panama and Costa Rica is the Three-toed Sloth, Bradypus variegatus. They can be quite common in places like Manuel Antonio Park in southern Costa Rica, and when you see one, you can be sure it will stay long enough for a good look.

  1. Both this photo and the young giraffe have an unusual effect on their fur. What have you done to produce this texture?

  2. Its partly to do with posting in a larger size (900 px on the longest side)

    Mostly it is due to using a plugin called Lucis. I use it just on the animal with an opacity of about 10%. It is amazing at picking up existing detail and applying local contrast. However it is easy to go overboard with it and its very expensive for something that has only limited use.

    I’m going to write a post on it soon.

    Cheers, Harold
