Silhouettes.

The silhouettes in this post are not, as was once sung in the ‘fifties song, “on the shade”, but against the tropical sky.

Capuchin (white-faced) monkey, feeding in a palm tree, Southern Costa Rica.

For many, the cecropia tree, in silhouette is iconically tropical.

There is tree skeleton next to Pete and MJ’s house.

It’s a perfect place to perch.

In the same skeletal tree, a woodpecker.

A golden orb weaver spider can almost always be found.
