Photo and caption by Deena Forcier

My mom always told me I could get a smile from anyone. She also told me to explore my wild side, travel, and see the world through new eyes always. I don't know if her intent was for me to pursue my wildlife photography dream by getting within 10ft of a very large reptile, but I find it intriguing. Over time, reptiles have become a favorite subject.

Location: Palo Verde National Park, Costa Rica
