Rainforest

10 Comments

When I learned that Manaus is in the Amazon rainforest, I decided to do a separate post just for rainforest pics. And I wrote a story about a couple enjoying the rainforest (to come in a separate post). I got a little carried away when I researched jungle photos on Flickr. Just so much gorgeous stuff out there, and talented photographers who capture it. Click on each pic to jump to the photographer’s Flickr page.

  1. Lots of lovely pics but I specially love the toucan eye and the flower.

  2. I remember my impressions of the Amazon in the 70’s with very few adjectives– majestic, beautiful, dangerous, and buggy– I’ve never seen so many insects in my life, and they all seem to bite.
    These pics are wonderful !!!! šŸ™‚

    • That’s so cool you experienced the Amazon. You pretty much backed up my impression that it would be very beautiful to see — but you have to deal with all the other stuff, too. And insects love me, for some reason. I’d probably walk out of the Amazon covered with bites!
