This is where I show the most recent images and talk about how they were made. The images typically relate to landscapes and wildlife, but I also blog about photos of highways and mitigation measures for wildlife or road ecology in general. Please contact me if you would like to use any of the images. You can subscribe to this blog by clicking here.

Giant river otters (Pteronura brasiliensis), Rio Negro, Pantanal, Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil. Endangered (IUCN, 2017)

This giant river otter family was resting on a beach along the river as we approached. They are really big; they look more like seals than "normal" otters. When they detected us they quickly slid into the water.
