MORE FROM BRAZIL

SOME MORE SHOTS FROM BRAZIL, GETTING THERE SLOWLY.
WE HAD A GOOD TIME IN BRAZIL ALTHOUGH IT WAS HARD
 GOING AT TIMES WITH LOTS OF RAIN AND LIGHTENING.
FOR OBVIOUS REASONS WE WEREN'T IN THE RIGHT FRAME OF
 MIND AND THIS IS THE FIRST TRIP WE HAVE DONE SINCE LOSING
 LEE SO IT WAS ALWAYS GOING TO BE DIFFICULT. WE THINK
 THOUGH THAT IT HAS HELPED US GET BACK INTO  OUR HOBBY.

  7. I have birded fairly extensively in South America, but never in Brazil. There is a whole range of species there not found in other countries on the continent. Great series of images here of some very distinctive species.

  8. If you had difficult weather conditions, John, your fabulous photography gives no indication of that! The birds are wonderful, especially those Tanagers, and the lighting and surrounds are so perfect that they look as if they could have been studio set-ups! No, I'm not suggesting that they were studio set-ups!

    I'm so pleased to hear that your trip also had some therapeutic aspects. With my very best wishes to you both - - - Richard
