My trip to Costa Rica ended in an area that is known for having many Quetzals. This photo is from an early morning tour where we were lucky to see two pairs of this beautiful bird up close. I returned the next day for an even closer view. As I was going back to the lodge to pack for the airport, another Quetzal flew over my head into an avocado tree behind our room. What a great way to end the perfect vacation.
