Travel by luxurious ship from island to island, wandering among animals that have no fear of people. We’ll photograph albatross, penguins, flamingos, blue-footed boobies, frigatebirds, giant tortoises, marine iguanas, and more. Snorkel in emerald waters with playful sea lions, sea turtles, and brilliantly colored tropical fish.
While most tours offer only one-week at sea, this tour offers a full two weeks. Suzi has teamed up with legendary Galapagos photographer and expert, Tui De Roy to offer a unique experience that will put us on shore with wildlife at first and last light, when most other tour groups are noticeably absent.
We have chosen the coolest time of year in Galapagos, when the seas are most productive and many species are nurturing cute babies.
Ecuador – a country about the size of Colorado – boasts over 1600 species of birds, 130 of them hummingbirds! Join me for an intensive workshop focusing on the many colorful hummingbirds, tanagers and other birds of the cloud forests. HIGHLIGHTS:
We’ll be staying at three beautiful locations and visiting many more. From the cloud forests on the eastern slope of the Andes to the arctic-like paramo of the highlands, down to the lowlands of the west slope, we will cover many different habitats and see a dizzying array of birds. I’ve reserved some of the best accommodations and bird photography locations available, and we will have an expert local guide with us for the entire workshop. Along with the birds, we will also have great opportunities for landscape and macro photography. You’ll find all of this on a backdrop of fantastic mountain scenery, mysterious cloud forest landscapes and rushing mountain streams, plus stunning orchids, butterflies, moths, reptiles and amphibians.
