El Yunque Rainforest, Puerto Rico

Upon returning to Puerto Rico, I took a trip to the El Yunque Rainforest.  The first stop was the Visitor’s Center.  There, a painting by Emilio de La Botija called Sobreviviré (To Survive) depicts a Puerto Rican Parrot and emphasizes the need to protect the rainforest.  Phalenopsis orchids hang throughout the visitor center.
