PERU 2011


Below are some images I took during a 3 month long trip to Peru in the Fall of 2011. With over 1800 species of birds Peru ranks second to only Columbia in terms of bird diversity. Let me tell you that there are some absolutely stunning birds. From the Andean Cock of the Rock to the Marvelous Spatuletail I had my hands full down there!

This gallery represents just a few of my favourites from this trip. Stay tuned on my website and newsletter for more...

Starting in 2013 I will be leading Photo Workshops to this exciting destination. To join the wish list for 2013 send me an email.
