Cloud Forests & Kinkajous

Here are some photos, taken by my talented fiancé, from a recent trip to Ecuador. We visited the cloud forests in and around Mindo, a charming town in a valley west of Quito. I may say more about this trip with words later, but for now…PICTURES! (Oooh, ahhh!)

Blue morpho butterfly. The other side of its wings are a brilliant blue. We saw one in the Amazonian region, all the way across a lake, because the color was so bright! Photo by Vishvodhay Thummalapally
