Glorious awakening

Puerto Maldonado is a city in Southeastern Peru in the Amazon forest 55 kilometres (34 mi) west of the Bolivian border on the confluence of the Tambopata and Madre de Dios River, a tributary of the Amazon River.

It is the capital of the Madre de Dios Region.

Nearby are the ManĂº National Park, Tambopata National Reserve, and Bahuaja-Sonene National Park.

These are some of the most pristine primary rain forests in the world, which include several oxbow lakes and clay licks, where hundreds of birds including macaws feed on clay. (Source: Wikipedia)

The camera used was an E-PL1 with a Panasonic 45-200mm f/4.0-5.6 Lumix G Vario MEGA OIS Zoom Micro Four Thirds Lens
