Barred Forest-Falcon Encounter
February 15th, 2012
I just got back from another awesome workshop in Costa Rica that I co-led with my good friend Greg Basco. On our last day there we spent 3 exhilarating hours photographing a Barred Forest-Falcon as it followed a swarm of Army Ants through the forest. They feed on both the ants and on the insects stirred up by the ants. It was an incredibly challenging environment to photograph in (changing light, lots of branches to contend with, and millions of biting Army Ants all over our legs). But the pay-off was some fantastic images and great memories.
