    Singblue,

    FG is actually expensive because of the plane ticket and the fact that everything is in euros down there. Depends of course what you do exactly down there, if you rent a car, what kind of accomodations you choose, etc. For two weeks, if you want freedom (rent a car), hard to make it under 3000$ I would say, plane alone will set you back 1500$ or more. There are some much cheaper destinations like Costa Rica where you will see as many, if not more things (from what I have been told from people who done both, the FG forest is very discrete).

    Chris, there certainly are some T pics, but I am not putting them on the net, not to be a jerk or anything, just that I am working on a publication and wish to keep the shots for that. So eventually you should be able to see them.

    Thank you everyone once more

    Actually now that I'm looking closer I can't tell 100%...haha

    I cannot see any calypters, and I cannot tell for sure that there is not another wing behind the other.

    If you have a high-rez image you can have a go at trying to ID, at least to family based on the wing venation.

    Wow

    Those pictures are incredible! Thank you for sharing them with us. You must have an awesome camera, and even more skills to use it. I haven't had the best luck taking pics of my own T's in their keepers. Thanks again, I can't wait for future pictures from you.

    well... for those who are not bored yet with my FG pictures, here are some from our new trip, just came back a week or so ago. I hope you like them.

    I will start with the amphibians

    First is a classic, the cane toad. I normally do not bother taking pictures anymore, but it was first time I see a couple mating and the second one, I just liked the pose on a coconut shell, looks like the master of the pond!

    next one, an Atelopus sp., I think A. franciscus, a very dark one. I am always excited to see harlequin toads in nature, it is like a kid's dream come true

    then the dendorbatids, first D. ventrimaculatus, this was on the patio porch where we were staying, hence the unfortunate cerramic tiles.

    [​IMG]

    and of course, the ever amazing D. tinctorius in all it's splendor

    the sleeping beauty

    this false coral, I was very happy to see.

    last, but certainly not least, the guy I almost stepped on, might have been the end of me, a Bothrops atrox.
