Fireworks at Rainier. I spent my July 4th evening next to a small lake near Mount Rainier. The show was marvelous, although it really drove home how small APS-format sensors are. With any luck, I’ll be climbing up this mountain as soon as next summer. I hope the weather is as good as it was in this picture, since these clouds cleared up shortly after the shot.

Two-Toed Mother and Baby

Two-Toed Mother and Baby. We found these guys snuggling up together in the tangled branches of an almond tree. Two-toed sloths are rarer and larger than their three-toed relatives, but their behavior is pretty similar. They don’t really seem to be bothered by much of anything.

Leatherback Turtle Nest. Turtle nest on Playa Bluff, Bocas Del Toro. The nest was made just last night, and the hatch of eggs is buried somewhere only a foot beneath the surface.

La Gruta. In the center of Isla Colon in the Bocas Del Toro archipelago, La Gruta cave is the home to bats, glow worms, and whip scorpions. My sister and I wandered 45 min down the passageway, eating lunch on a large mineral deposit. On our way out, we paused at the first sign of light from the surface. Exposure was done using light painting.
