When the month December crosses one's mind you will automatically think of the last month of the year. One that most people are looking forward too as it is also known as the month of presents and surprises. The Lowland tapir has been the present of Kabalebo during the month December.
For nearly 3 years now I have been feeding and observing wild ocelots near the lodge. One of the frequent visitors is Lotje, a caring ocelot mom who surely deserves the mother-of-the-year award.
It is always a joy to have some unexpected visitors showing up in front of your doorstep. Or in my case in front of my camera.
After patiently waiting until he arrived again at the feeder, I finally got the chance to meet him in person. This is Junior, the third cub of Lotje, in pictures. Enjoy!
When trying to spot as many birds as possible I usually take a boat trip in combination with a hiking trip. Trips that are usually a bit further from the resort. But when the water disappears from the river and boat trips become scarce, we go back to basic. For my last birding trip in 2015 we are going to explore the area near the resort.
The Black Amphisbaena (Amphisbaena fuliginosa) is a worm lizard that lives for most of its time in soil. Occasionally it appears on the surface, giving us the opportunity to have a closer look.
A couple of days ago the trophy cam captured a photobomb. It was clear to see who wanted to be in the picture. I enjoyed it very much!
Since the arrival of feeders near the lodge, I have seen some regular visitors among the hummingbirds. The Black-throated Mango, the female in particular, is one of them. In return for this extra treat, she gives me the chance to observe her during her nesting period … for the second time.
