I photographed this wonderfully active three-toed sloth (Bradypus spp.) last May at the Tranquilo Bay Eco Lodge in Bocas del Toro, Panama. Panama is host to a myriad of rainforest species, including the two and three-toed sloths. Unlike Costa Rican sloths, which have large predators and stay hidden most of the day, their Panamanian cousins are often active and in the open during broad daylight.

On the road from Pitlochry to Inverness, we stumbled upon a glorious rainbow in Cairngorms National Park. I asked our driver to stop the van, and my clients and I captured the fleeting moment of sunshine and color from the roadside.

I’m looking forward to returning to South Dakota next week for my 9th annual Badlands Landscape Workshop. It’s a fabulous location for sunrises and sunsets, and offers spectacular scenery and the opportunity to use a variety of photographic techniques. I hope you’ll consider one of my photography tours as part of your path towards better photography.
Most people have heard of the famous Blue-footed booby, but the Galapágos is home to several other species of these comical birds, such as this Nazca booby. While boobies are quite ungainly on land, they are agile in flight and excellent swimmers.
