The image today of this hillside covered in tiny yellow flowers reminded me of something out of a hobbit movie. The rotted fence posts scattered about made the scene all the more Hollywood. Of course we were not there for the wildflowers, we were trying to spot a family of Resplendent Quetzal’s that were supposed to be waiting for us in a tree for a nice portrait. Maybe we walked right on by and they snickered at us missing their presence, but I don’t think so. We looked long and hard for the colorful little birds and in the end, settled for the beautiful yellow flowers. Fortunately, we did get to see one while hiking in Monteverde, so all was not lost!
