Terry Thormin is a keen naturalist who managed to translate his passion into a day job, first working for a private ecological consulting company doing bird work, then working for the Royal Alberta Museum in the invertebrate zoology program. Now retired, his is able to pursue his passion for nature and nature photography full time. He has travelled extensively to places in Central and South America, and even to Southeast Asia and Africa. His most recent trip was to Costa Rica and the primary focus was nature photography.

Terry spent 25 days in Costa Rica last winter, staying at three different eco-tourist lodges with the sole purpose of photographing the local flora and fauna. Everything, from the magnificent vistas to the smallest of insects caught his eye and became subjects for his camera lens. He hopes that his photography will reflect some of the wonder he felt as he explored life in the rain forests and cloud forests of this magnificent country.
