This hanging bridge is at the Bosque del Cabo lodge on the Osa peninsula of Costa Rica. It's near Corcovado National park.

The forest near the stream would probably be called primary growth. There might be monkeys. macaws, sloths, parrots in the trees. Puma and tapir have been seen near the stream. A day later, I saw a troop of coatis near the bridge. Alas, this was mid-afternoon and not the best time for seeing animals.

It's a bit challenging to shoot from a suspension bridge of this size. They tend to be a bit bouncy. Initially, I made things worse by trying to stay close to the center. Doing that meant that minor shifts in my balance made for a see-saw effect on my bridge segment. Standing off center on the same side as my tripod reduced movement quite a bit.
