January 22, 2017 - Exploring Cano Negro Reserve, Humming Birds, & more

Today we continued to explore Cano Negro reserve spending more time photographing around the region. Some of the group spent time capturing more humming birds and in the afternoon we took advantage of the water ways and explored more of the wetlands. This evening we had dinner in an open air dinning room. Here is the selection of todays images as we continue to catch up on the blog.
