The world is a mesmerizing place to live in, I can assure you. While we all know our homeland the best and have explored some other places while traveling, a larger part of the planet is still left unknown to most of us.
Therefore, photography here comes to assistance.
Supreet Sahoo, a tropical wildlife photographer from India, visited Peru, the country of one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, Machu Picchu, the Amazon rainforest, and the Inca Trail.
Yet, what Sahoo documented there were the fascinating birds!
With his Canon 1D X Mark II and 600 mm, he created a mesmerizing compilation of photos of Peruvian birds.
“Peru is where photographers and bird watchers aspire to go. It is, after all, a country with the most diverse bird species and scenic views that have worldwide photographers stunned. It is a must-visit on every bird photographer’s bucket list. Peru is a birder’s paradise with the most beautiful avian treasury in the world.
Peru is home to 20% of the world’s total bird species, along with the highest number of endemics in the world! And the count increases every day. It is abundant with so many beautiful destinations, and apart from the well-known heritage site Machu Picchu, I had to show you the birds the country boasts of!”
Sahoo regularly shares his experiences from the wild and adds:
“In the last few years, I have been working with naturalists and guides in Central and South American rainforests to establish a network that helps me and my guests get special access to tropical wildlife. This is what separates our tours from the rest. From seeing owls and quetzals in private farms in Costa Rica to finding Cock of the Rock leks in private farms in Colombia -- we do everything to get the best images possible! “
