While at Arenal (Volcano) Resort, we decided to take in the Butterfly Garden and tour on our own. The trail leading to it had some exotic fruit tree.
The inside smelled citrusy. We didn't eat any and never found out what it was.
Central American bulls have funny ears.
Along the trail...unusual plants.
Another strange fruit, inside something like a walnut shell. And these 2 are a bit different.
Mr. T read this to me while I shot the pic, which brought more than a chuckle...in part, it says:
GREGADO RAIN FOREST AND RESERVE
"This trail you are about to walk is a loop about 1500 meters (1 mile long) passing over
mildly undulating terrain. "
(Oh, it was MORE than mild! Hee-hee...Our newest favorite phrase now).
We made our way to the enclosed Butterfly Garden, aptly named, as we only saw a single butterfly. And, he mostly stood.
This wild Blue and Gold Macaw visited the porch twice a day.
The workers there feed him almonds.
The Torch Ginger was large, abundant, and brilliant.
The limes are orange inside!
This guy rustled the leaves, surprising me on the way to breakfast.
Luckily, I had my camera ready, just as he struck a pose.
Looks as if he's ready to stick out his tongue at me!
MORE TO COME....
