This photo essay features the beautiful and varied wildlife of the Tambopata National Reserve in southeastern Peru.
During my week in the Amazon, the shortcomings of my compact Canon S100 became abundantly clear.
This post includes a few of my photos but is predominantly the work of Jeff Cremer, who runs photography tours and workshops through Rainforest Expeditions.
I saw everything in these photos, and much more. The one exception is the Giant River Otter, which was too cute to leave out on such a minor technicality.
Disclosure: This tour was in partnership with Rainforest Expeditions. As always, any opinions expressed are entirely my own.
