Wildlife Seen On Our Cruise
April 7-19, 2006
Friendly Monkeys - Devil's Island French Guiana
These guys have figured out that tourists sometimes have crackers!
Water Buffalo - at Santarem, Brazil
("wildlife"? arguable, but whatever)
Iguanas - at Devil's Island, French Guiana
River catfish - Santarem, Brazil+
Rainbow Piranha - Santarem, Brazil
Fellow tourists caught several on baited drop lines
Black Piranha - Santarem, Brazil
Unusual catch. Cleaned, breaded and grilled for us right on the boat
Caiman - near Manaus, Brazil
Caught at night by spotting with a bright light then simply grabbing it from the water
Annoyed bird - at night, Manaus, Brazil
Probable member of the moorhen family
Scarlet Ibis - at Cabrini Refuge, Trinidad
No, the color has NOT been enhanced in these photos
White Birds (well, duh!)
Tree Boa - Tortola
Hmmmm - how'd this get in here?
Am not complaining about the tours taken - they were well organized, entertaining and informative - but as you can tell from the paucity of subjects and of great wildlife photos here, a general cruise with standard cruise-line tours is NOT the best way to see/photograph wildlife or birds. To do it right one needs more time and serious focus. At the very least I suggest a private guide/tour and/or a tour specifically designed for sighting and photography. And maybe a better photographer.
