We had a fairly long ride from Cerro de la Muerte to the Pacific coast, our next destination, but we made a few stops along the way, as interesting things were spotted. This sloth was much more in the clear than usual, at a lower height as well, affording abetter than average photo opportunity. With his face quite shaded, I used flash to light it up, with ambient light settings made to tone down the background. I still have difficulty telling the 2-toed from the 3-toed sloth, but there's no potential for making a mistake on this one!
