16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Coati in tree in Costa Rica

I looking for wildlife to photograph near Arenal volcano in Costa Rica and I saw what looked like a large snake hanging in a tree. When I got closer I saw that the "snake" was covered with fur and looking up further in the tree I saw a face looking at me.
