Memories of rain forests

with 7 comments

It’s changed: time fell backward, daylight hours shortened, temperature decreased and precipitation, wind and fog levels increased.  Looking for sun and warmth, memories of rain forests and tropical beaches come to mind.  Last week I caught myself longing for a lazy nap, splayed on a beachside hammock in Costa Rica.

Until I can get back to that hammock in Corcovado, I have Nature of the Rainforest – a stunning collection of photographs and ecological literature written by Adrian Forsyth.  A few images from the book are available online, which means I will post them here :]

In the Wee Frog category are photographs of reticulated glass frogs and rain frogs:

Reticulated glass frogs (Hyalinobatrachium valerioi)

Rain frogs (Eleutherodactylus spp.)

In the Adorable Quadruped category are pics of a nine-banded armadillo, a silky anteater and a three-toed sloth doing acrobatics:

Nine-banded armadillo (Dasypus novemcinctus)

Silky anteater (Cyclopes didactylus)

Three-toed sloth (Bradypus variegatus)

  2. I don’t know who’s cuter, the silky anteater or the pygmy marmoset.

  3. There’s enough cuteness in the world for everyone to be a weiner.
