These are photos from a recent birding trip to Peru. They are intended to accompany my day-by-day account of the trip on my Blog. Ultimately, these photos and the many thousand others I shot in Peru will be the reference photos for new studio paintings of wild places. I will add photos each day to match the diary in my Web Log.
