An infra-red view overlooking the north face of Ben Nevis from the summit, just as the clouds started to roll over the ridge. It was largely clear for much of the climb, and the views from the top were excellent for a while.

This was one of two chicks I found in the forests of Tortuguero. Whatever had happened must have happened recently as they weren't attended by scavengers at the time. Ten minutes later they were being fed on by Bullet Ants. These are the largest species of ant in the world (on the far left of the photo are a couple of more conventionally sized ants). I must admit I was fairly ignorant to the kind of pain Bullet Ants can inflict, having been led amongst them earlier that evening photographing frogs and lizards!
I think I may have missed the bluebells at their best - Many of them seemed a little tired and wilted today. Then again there were plenty that didn't appear to have opened yet too. Grace didn't seem to care :)
