White Faced Capuchin Monkey – Costa Rica

Roughly 20% of Costa Rica is set aside as national parks.  This is what makes the country so special.  In fact, while I was traveling through Corcovado National Park in Southern Costa Rica I saw all four species (spider, howler, squirrel, and capuchin) of Costa Rican monkeys in one view.  This little guy was pretty feisty and ran around the canopy tracking our every move.  Capuchins are considered one of the smartest monkeys so many have been used to help out paraplegics in their daily lives.  The ones without training end up organ grinder assistants.  Just kidding!  They are actually Central American “Johnny Appleseeds”.  They travel throughout the forest in troops of 20 or more and they disperse seeds along the way from the berries and fruits they eat.  Poo makes for great fertilizer.

Witches Rock – Santa Rosa National Park, Costa Rica

Wow! My brother and I are really overwhelmed by the support we have gotten here at www.photobotos.com since we started a little over a month ago.  I just checked our latest status report and we are up 7 million website rankings in two weeks!  You guys rule!  OK, I don’t want to get ahead of ourselves because we are still ranked 3.2 million by www.alexa.com.  Just for perspective www.google.com is #1, but we are blowing the doors off www.basketweaving.com.   Look out www.steve.com you are next in our sights and we are coming for you!

Today’s photo was created at a world class surf break in Costa Rica. Located in the Santa Rosa National Park, Witches Rock (Roca Bruja) was featured in the Endless Summer sequel.  My wife and I camped during the rainy season in the park, but had to sleep in our car because we were overrun with raccoons.  They were trying to get in our tent the entire night.  When we woke up the next morning we were the only ones in the park.  We walked down to the beach and an olive ridley sea turtle was laying her eggs in the sand.  I surfed all day and then got this amazing photo at sunset when the sky caught fire.

Me and the boys – Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve, Costa Rica

I am the guy with the camera in this shot.  This was taken a couple years back by my wife, Adrienne, in the Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve in Costa Rica.  My brother to who is the webmaster of this site was on the trip, but was sleeping at the time.  His lifestyle at the time was best suited for night photography, fiesta photography, and another kind of “shot”.  I am 39 years old and live in Encinitas, CA.  This is a little surf town on the coast in San Diego county.   I spend most of my time with my family, surfing, or taking pictures.  Once my boys get a bit older I hope to take photos of them surfing and I will have worked my three favorite things into one perfect package.  Thanks for reading this blog and stay tuned for some new content that I think you will really enjoy.
