About half a year ago I bought a Spotting scope to look at wildlife for a long time. Especially when I like to spot birds, this device comes in handy. Here I spotted a couple of Scarlet Macaws inside the rainforest. They were resting during the day and since it was also a warm day, they decided to hide under the shades of the trees.
This Spotting Scope also had an adapter to make it possible to take pictures with this scope. It looks like these Macaws were right nearby but in reality they were in one of the highest/tallest trees in the Amazon rainforest.
It was such a treat for me to look at these marvelous animals without getting a stiff neck and shaky hands by holding my binocular for so long.

It is now very common that other animals also come to the ocelot feeder: opossums, paca's, Tegu's, Vultures ... just to name a few. They all enjoy the free left overs. But there are also others who are just passing by.
While I was going through the trap cam pics, taken at the ocelot feeder, I stumbled upon this particular picture; a Lowland tapir just minding his own business while crossing over. As the feeder is right behind staff houses it is now clear that this tapir was right behind us walking through our garden too.
Expect the unexpected!
That is quite a scare!
This Golden Tegu, by no means, scared this Black Vulture at the ocelot feeder. It almost gave it a heart attack by sneaking up to him from behind.
While looking through all the video's and pictures from the ocelot trap cam, I came across these pictures of the Black Vulture and the Golden Tegu. It all happened in a split second, but those were such pretty pictures to share.
When no one is looking, this is what Lotje is doing during the night.
Lotje, the resident ocelot, likes to share her food with her cubs. How about with other animals not related to her?
