After two great days photographing hummingbirds, we traveled to Catarata del Toro for another day of photographing hummingbird species that were not as common as at our lodge. The species include the green hermit, black-bellied hummingbird, green thorntail and coppery:-headed emerald. What makes this location so enjoyable is an impressive waterfall, that drops 300 feet into the caldera of an extinct volcano. There are lookout stations placed so that you can observe the volcano and take some excellent photographs. A few of our group hiked down to the bottom, down 300+ stairs and then back again. In order to accomplish this and so that the participants would miss out on the hummingbird photography, instead of a half-hour at the station photographing, we did an hour in the morning and in the afternoon.
I did a few macro photographs before the mosquitoes and rain drove me back inside.
We were also treated to an excellent lunch. After finishing and packing all equipment up. We returned to our lodge for our last evening meal. That evening the leaders present some how-to-do information, and afterwards it was packing for the trip back to San Jose in the morning.
