The Jungle Track by Thomas Sweetman

Driving into the mountains for sunrise in northern Thailand, I came across an off-road track that led 5km up a steep ledge, just wide enough for the 4x4. It was 20 minutes of slow driving with a couple of landslides en route. Half way along I stopped to take this shot with my drone.


Amazon Kingfisher by Gerry Zambonini

This kingfisher was pictured in Caño Negro, a wonderful place for birdwatching. These kingfishers are widely distributed in Central and South America. They are easily disturbed and always on the move so getting a shot was not easy.
