UR. Monarch chrysalis.
These are several types of butterfly cocoons, even the brown ones have life inside.
Some looked like pearly colors.
They are removed from the leaves where found and pinned up to the stick.
(Locally at Wild Wings, I've seen them glued to holders.)
Are these what bit me?
Truth is that I knew the sloth was in a tree and from very far, I saw a dark bulge and took the shot,
never knowing what Sloth looked like. Sloth is arboreal, tree dwelling.
Sloth and Anteater are related in the Pilosa family. Hmm, think this is an Iquana.
or is it a COATIMUNDI, a tropical raccoon?
I saw this fast guy when I came down from the Hanging Bridges when I was wandering alone.
I have had fun creating the collages using fonts
that I thought looked closer to the creatures than other fonts.
I used mostly green backgrounds because Costa Rica was so green.

I have 1,300 photos to process (organize and edit) and will add more landscapes and scenes of Costa Rica.
Please return here for another visit and maybe I'll be finished.
