Fantastic, Rodger. They are all great. The Magnificent Frigatebird is truly a magnificent BIF. That Howler Monkey looks menacing, looks like it's ready to pounce on you. Very interesting squirrel! Too bad the Osprey came up empty but this is a great shot, nonetheless. I've been waiting for the Ospreys to return to our local lake. It's pretty dramatic how they dive head first into the water.

Thanks for all those comments Vickie. The Howler Monkey shot is a bit misleading because it looks like I was on the same level at it, but in fact I was looking up and it was looking down at me. There was no signs of aggression from the monkey. I was busy eating leaves.

With regards to the osprey, its the first time I've managed to get a shot of one. I do have pre and post dive shots as well and might post them at a later time.
