I have been lucky to have spent the last few summers in the Amazon Rainforest in Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve, Ecuador. This has helped me invest time in learning how to take better photos of wildlife!
It takes time to be able to have the opportunity to see wildlife. I learned from participating on many 4 to 5 day jungle tours, that even with the best guide, that sometimes you get lucky and sometimes you don’t. So the more time you spend immersed in nature, the greater the chance of seeing wildlife and getting a good photo!
Sometimes you get lucky and sometimes you don’t!
Taking great photos also requires time and patience to learn about animal behaviour. Birds especially don’t often pose for a photo, so you have to learn to anticipate their behaviour in order to get a good shot.
I have been so fortunate to learn so much about wildlife in Ecuador’s Amazon region thanks to all of the amazing guides and staff at Guacamayo Lodge and Siona Lodge. Special thanks to my fiancé Neiser who made all of these photos possible 😉
