At the end of the Transpantaneira, as well as doing the boat trip and seeing the beautiful Jaguars (pics are already up in a previous post), we discovered some other really nice things.
1. Hyacinth Macaws. These are the largest of the Macaws are they are really big. The main colour is a spectacular cobalt blue.
2. Hyacinth Macaws are generally found in pairs. H upset this one and it was giving him a stern warning, and he was backing away from that beak. What he did was climb in behind the fence to look into the nesting hole that the partner Macaw had gone into. Bad Hendrik.
3. These Cabybaras had 5 baby capybaras! Unfortunately, on the morning we left there seemed to be only 2 babies left. Would be predators: Jaguars, Caimán, Anacondas, humans (always a threat).
4. That's me (Ali) walking across a lake of Victoria lily. I read years ago that the biggest of these lillies will support the weight of a newborn baby. These lillies are spectacular.
