These wildlife photos were taken in Bolivia, Venezuela, and the US and Canada. The anteater photos, as well as the photos of the enormous anaconda were taken in their natural habitat in the Los Llanos region of Venezuela. The anaconda photos, in particular, were a challenge - acquired only after hours of dangerously wading swamps before we spotted two that had obviously recently eaten - and both were within about fifty meters of each other. The photo of the piranha was taken in the Rio Yacuma region of Bolivia. The butterfly photos were taken at the Butterfly House in the Hortus Botanicus (Botanical Gardens) of Amsterdam and the Butterfly Conservatory of Niagara Falls in Ontario, Canada. Larger version of these photos can be viewed by using a mouse rollover, clicking an image, or using the Slideshow below. See everything TheWorldinLight has to offer at Destinations and Topics.
