I took this photo of a baby sloth at my friend Fred's development, El Encanto del Sur. I was photographing the bark of this tree when I noticed what appeared to be the top of an egg. I looked from the other side of the tree and it appeared to be the fuzzy head of a bird. Just then my friend Carmen said, "I I see a head!"
"You see a bird?" I asked.
"It's a face!"
I walked to the other side of the tree, expecting to see a baby bird when all of a sudden this cute little thing appeared in the crook of the branches. I have never seen a baby sloth in the wild, so this was a special treat. I wish I had my Nikon with me (it would have been a National Geographic shot), but that's another story.
