The flowers of Monteverde

Besides having a really good time in Monteverde, I also manged to enjoy two guided tours. One to the Santa Elena Cloud Forest Reserve (La Reserva Bosque Nuboso Santa Elena) and the other was a night walk just around the area of Monteverde. Most of the flowers you will see here are from the Cloud Forrest. There are definitely no pictures from the night walk here, as it was too dark and wet.

What surprised me most were the sometimes really colorful flowers of Monteverde. Almost all seem to be endemic, at least the tiny ones are so different from anything I have seen so far. The cloud forest is a real treasure trove for flowers. Yours, Pollybert
