Tortuguero part 2 of 3
A local fisherman - still fishing with traditional methods A huge fan palm (yes, that's Madison at the bottom of that tree!) These are called Spider Lillies
There were HUGE bamboo forests all around us - at LEAST as tall as a 2 or 3 story building
Yesteday I looked at some of the wildlife of the rain forest, today I want to look at some of the incredible plant life the rain forest. Once again I am struck with awe at my surroundings. Most of these pictures look like something out of National Geographic (not complementing my photo skills at all - complementing God's beauty - because my camera only captured what He created). If you can possibly go to this area of the world, and not have an understanding or appreciation of God, I would have to clearly question your existence, because how can you not? Enjoy Gods beauty!
