The amusing photo above was sent to us by one of our readers, Rebecca Scholl of Smyrna, Georgia, who snapped the shot while on her honeymoon in Costa Rica.

About the photo, Scholl said:

I was reading your guide by the pool at our resort in La Fortuna when we saw a few birds and began taking pictures. This poor bird’s wings are clipped and he actually lives at the resort. It looks like he is reading a manual on how to fly. Thought you would enjoy the picture with your book. Thanks for a great guide book!

Thanks to you, Rebecca, for sending us this photo and letting us know you found our Moon Costa Rica guidebook helpful. We’re glad you had a great trip.

We love it when readers send us photos, and we have a Flickr photo page where we welcome submissions of your best travel photos. If we choose to feature one of your photos on our site, we’ll send you a stylish Moon baseball cap.
