Soon after arriving at La Selva OTS, before entering the various jungle paths, we spotted a pair of White Hawks soaring well above us. I had only seen this species once before, on a beach at the Osa Peninsula, so was excited to catch a few frames of one in flight. Even with the 600 lens, and 2x teleconverter, I still had to crop this image a fair amount for display here. It's not quite critically sharp, but as it is a relatively uncommon sighting, wanted to include it here.
