Honduran white bat, Ectophylla alba; Ghost Bat, rare, threatened species,  has snow white fur and a yellow nose and ears. It is tiny, only 3.7-4.7 cm long. The only member of the genus Ectophylla, it is found in Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and western Panama at elevations from sea level to 700 m. It feeds at least in part on fruit. this bat will use the leaf of the large heliconia plant to form a tent. It does so by cutting the side veins of the plant that extend out from the midrib; this causes the leaf to droop along the stem, making a tent. The little white bats then cling to the inner plant upside-down in small colonies of around six, although larger groupings have been reported. Unlike most bats that do make tents - the Honduran White Bat will not flee if disturbed lightly by looking under the leaf - they will only flee when the stem itself is disturbed causing a brief flurry of activity. The advantage of having their white fur is postulated to be the reason - as when sunlight filters through the leaf they look green, and so by not moving they will go un-noticed by possible predators from below.

Catarata Del Toro, the biggest waterfall in Costa Rica, columnar jointing in basalt that you can observe from your hotel right behind the waterfall: columnar jointing forms in lava flows in most cases, and is somewhat a rather rare feature. Columns are straight and regular (but sometimes curved) with 4 to 7 faces (check the steps along the steep track going down to the water fall!). It is commonly interpreted as resulting from rapid cooling from the top downward, most likely in the presence of water. Below the columnar jointing unit is a different, more altered (orange color is due to the presence of clay minerals that forms during alteration) unit with bombs and scoriae. Unlike columnar jointing, which result from effusion of basaltic lava, such feature results from a more a explosive event that occurred prior to eruption of columnar basalt. Both deposits most likely results from the (extinct) volcanic activity of the Porvenir Volcano.Costa Rica, Central America, Costa RicaD382706zKs.tif

green-crowned brilliant, Heliodoxa jacula, male on a crab claw helconid flower;  is a large, robust hummingbird that is a resident breeder in the highlands from Costa Rica to western EcuadorCosta Rica, It often sits on flowers to feed rather than hovering. The female green-crowned brilliant is distinguished from the male by her lack of metallic plumage on her head and by the lack of the brilliant metallic violet-blue patch on her breast. Adult females also have have a short white malar streak and white underparts that are spotted with green. Both males and females have a white spot behind the eye, a white crissum and a shallowly-forked black tail, although the female's outer tail feathers have white tips. Female green-crowned brilliants can be distinguished from females of other species by their white malar stripe and by their distinctively coloured and patterned underparts.Bosque de Paz Biological Reserve, waterfalls,  tropical montane rainforest, cloud forest; neotropical, rainforest, rain forest {rain forest, humid rainforest}; neotropical,  Central America, BrilliantGc8952.tif
