A couple weeks ago, I published my new gallery of bird photos from Brazil. Now it’s time for the main course!
This trip was scheduled so I could scout western Brazil, and especially the Pantanal, to see if it would make sense as a photo tour destination. The Pantanal has become a must-see destination for wildlife photographers for one main reason: jaguars! It’s the best place in the world to see the largest feline in the Americas, which also happened to be one of the only remaining big cats (along with the clouded leopard) that I had not seen in the wild.
Well, there was no problem finding jaguars (see below!), but this region is also home to a lot of other species. We had numerous encounters with giant river otters, and we saw anteaters, armadillos and even an ocelot. There were some nice reptile encounters as well.
See the full gallery of 141 images here. A short preview is below.
View all of the photos in the Brazil 2017 Wildlife & Scenery gallery. And remember, you can order prints of nearly any image in the photo archive.
Join me in Brazil in 2018!
This scouting trip was a big success, so I will be leading a photo tour back to the Pantanal in late July of 2018. We’ll look for jaguars (we have a very good chance of seeing them) and other wildlife, including many of the amazing birds featured above and in the gallery.
This tour is limited to 6 guests. There are only 2 spots left!
