|This is a close-up of the approx location of our camp site within Wayqetcha, the satelite map was a little cloudy and didn't have a clear view of our actual camp site. The main station was where the internets were (sometimes).|
Ok, back to the photos. This post is the second third of photos from the first half of my working time in Peru. Did you follow that? That's ok, takeaway is that there are some more bird and butterfly photos from the high elevations.
|Oressinoma butterfly. I am not certain on the species, but either way- these little guys were my favorite butterflies in the high elevations. (The low elevation butterflies are a whole different story!)|
|Corades butterfly, again- working on the species for this one.|
|The larger bird on the right is a black and chestnut eagle (Spizaetus isidori) and the smaller is a white throated hawk (Buteo albigula). Not sure why these two were hanging out together, but it didn't seem hostile.|
|Amethyst-throated sun angel (Heliangelus amethysticollis).|
|Our tagged bird Lola (shining sunbeam, Aglaeactis cupripennis) protecting her Oreocallis flowers from flower-piercers.|
|Amazing or creepy? I choose the former. Sphaenognathus feisthameli, a member of the stag beetle family.|
The last third of the first half are coming soon.
