The mountain birds of Costa Rica.
In 1970, a couple of botanists from Harvard University who studied micro orchids noted in their report that there is a large concentration of resplendent quetzals in the forests of the Costa Rica moutains region.
This magnificent bird so rare caused the influx of people who wanted to see these unique birds in the world. From this point that the birds of the mountains of Costa Rica began to be observed. Indeed, many endemic species were discovered. More than 170 different species of birds can be observed.
Dominant trees of the forest are oaks (about 75%). These massive trees used to grow the chicks from predators. So the branches are covered with many species of orchids are food for birds, especially for hummingbirds. Under the canopy, the atmosphere is very wet and saturated with water. This allows the development of many plant species such as bamboo that can reach 6 meters tall. There are also many species of palms and ferns. The density of various green plants species explain the existence of all these species.

We are fascinated and passionate about the beauties of nature. We love to see the landscapes and observe wild animals whether on land or underwater. We have chosen to become professional photographers to share the emotions we feel when we observe nature whether it be on land or underwater. Our goal is to create art with our photographs. We always try to transform the banal into a contemplative and artistic interpretation.
We are wildlife professional photographers, landscape professional photographers and underwater professional photographers. We also strive to document nature with a focus on conservation and education.
We make art prints from our artistic photographs. These art prints are available on our website. We make exhibitions to show all the beauties and the incredible richness of nature that surrounds us.
We also love to share our love for the beauties of nature with other photographers. To communicate our know-how and to exchange our techniques and our points of view, we organize wildlife photography workshops, underwater photography workshops and landscape photography workshops. We gather together people who have the same passion as us for the beautiful photographs taken in nature.
