Among the most astonishing things about the rainforests is that in your entire life, even living inside one of them, you will not be able to witness every phenomenon of this immense “box” of marvels. Maybe a lot of them, maybe “almost” everything, but not all.
No jokes, this is just a very short post that will be followed by other ones soon. I’m just back from a long month in Peru, where I also found a beautiful super giant queen of the bullet ant (Paraponera clavata).
You know, I normally like the wide-angle macro techniques to have both my subject and its habitat in the same frame.
While at Wayqecha Biological Station on the Andes I photographed this Simulium (Psilopelmia) bicoloratum, also called “that damned sons of a b..ch”, sucking my own blood with permission.
