Tridactyloid Grasshopper (Ripipteryx rivularia) A Tridactyloid Grasshopper, also called a Mud Cricket. This specimen was sitting on a leaf of one of our pea trees and was not skittish at all. However, it was fairly difficult to photograph because of the angle and heavy winds in addition to harsh sunlight.<br />
<br />
Also, Happy New Year everyone ( better late than never right :) ). I hope everyone has a great year filled with lots of cool observations :)<br />

Thus far I&#039;ve been having great success capturing more wildlife shots after a really long struggle, so there will definitely be more photos to come.

        1. Tufted Capuchin (Sapajus apella) A Tufted Capuchin feeding atop a tree branch. This species was actually introduced to Trinidad and Tobago and has since established a breeding population. This was photographed in the always magical Chaguaramas Peninsula of Trinidad, a place where you can see all three species of monkeys in Trinidad.
