After the treasure from Costa Rica, I bring you gems from this stunning South American country—Ecuador.

Although Ecuador is one of the smaller countries in South America, it boasts an incredible diversity of habitats that support a fantastic array of wildlife. With a list of more than 1500 species of birds, many of which are shared only with adjacent Columbia or Peru, it is difficult to imagine a more exciting birding destination.

The country is hospitable and so are the people, who always have a warm smile and help in the conservation of wildlife.

I have traveled within Ecuador for a few years now. Every time I visit the cloud forests or the Amazon, I fall in love with this country all over again!

These are some of my photographs to show you guys how beautiful the varied species of this country are.

I hope you enjoy it!

All photos are taken from my Canon 1dx mark II and 600mm lens..
