As we would find every time we headed out to any particular shooting location, we saw as much while getting to our final destination, as we did once we got there. In other words, getting there was half the fun. Our guide and driver accommodated our frequent stops as different birds or other animals (or unique flowers or trees) were spotted. We spotted this Caracara in the light rain, and were able to shoot for a while before he flew off.
