Photographing the Osa: Form and Function

The incredible diversity of species living in a rainforest is paralleled by a riot of shapes and colors. At the same time, most of the plants are seeking light; most of the animals are looking for food, shelter, or mates; and everything has a water-management strategy to cope with the incessant rain.

The photographs here either represent a range of what I felt were aesthetically pleasing forms or illustrate particularly interesting functions of rainforest plants.
