The theme for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is “Movement.”

He sails through the air with the greatest of ease! (Costa Rica Howler Monkey)

The sound of howler monkeys crashing through the treetops will get anyone’s attention!  To see them soaring from branch to branch fills one with a childlike glee!  Living immersed in nature, I witness sudden explosive glimpses of movement as well as subtle ones.   Here are samples of movement that reflect my life in Latin America.   Enjoy the pictorial journey!  Z

For every monkey that soars through the trees, there’s a snake that creeps through the foliage with stealth!

And there are subtle movements of a butterfly…

Each day more people came to watch the waves at high tide.

The parents were relaxed, but I was concerned for the children’s safety.
