I am endlessly fascinated by the trees here. We were walking in a new area the other day, an open space where roads are being built in preparation for a new housing area. At the end of one of the roads was this magnificent tree.
The tree gets more interesting the closer you get.
I’ve been looking on amazon. There is a book there – Trees of Panama and Costa Rica. I think I need something like this. I’d also like to have a book about insects. According to “Insects of Panama and Mesoamerica” on amazon – One of the highest concentrations of insect species in the world is found in Mesoamerica and the Isthmus of Panama. But, that is a subject for another day. Right now we are off to visit the river, and I’m taking the camera (of course!)
