A friends trip to Ecuador

A friend of mine visited the Amazon rainforest in North East Ecuador at the end of last year, flying out on Xmas day; she has just finished uploading her photos to her website. Amanda is an Entomologist but interested in all wildlife and also a keen photographer.

Amanda is an adventurer and is frequently found in some very remote parts of the world and also having a few close shaves. On this trip it was with a Black Caiman, as they were canoeing along the Amazon Mandy was not aware that a Caiman was following, it closed on the canoe and made a lunge for Mandy who just saw it in time and yanked her arm in before its jaws closed on her!
Amanda has posted  just under 1000 photos from her visit to Ecuador and includes, Bugs, Butterflies, Dragonflies, Reptiles, Amphibians, Primates, Mammals, Birds, Fungi, you name it, its there!. Please take a look.

A few sample photos from her site.
