Virtual: A Nature Photographer's Trip To Costa Rica
Tuesday, February 7, 2023
Have you ever wondered why over 600 birds call Costa Rica their home year round? Due to its diverse topography, this tropical nation contains several life zones supporting a wide variety of birds, from tiny iridescent hummingbirds to colorful toucans. Discover Costa Rica’s national treasures with a top wildlife photographer as he travels by boat through mangrove swamps and wetlands, and hikes into lush rainforests on the side of a volcano in search of wildlife. By sharing these remarkable photographs, Peter hopes you will develop a deeper appreciation for the birds, animals, and plants that inhabit this fragile tropical paradise where the rainforest meets the sea.
Led by award-winning nature photographer Peter Christoph, a well-known speaker who has presented to the Photographic Society of America (PSA), New England Camera Club Council (NECCC,) and the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC), in addition to Mass Audubon, the National Wildlife Refuge System, numerous camera clubs, birding clubs, and libraries. The past president of the Camera Club of Central New England, Christoph has received many prestigious national and international awards and medals. He’s published three nature photography books, including his latest, The Art of Bird Photography.
