Part 02/8 of Glenn Bartley’s month-long trip around Ecuador. From our base in the Tandayapa Valley we made a few day trips to visit nearby photography hot-spots. We even managed photos of some really tough species like the Toucan Barbet (see below). Everyone also got fantastic shots of the gorgeous Masked Trogon. But above all else we focused on photographing hummingbirds using my patented multi-flash techniques (including the beautiful Andean Emerald and Purple-bibbed White-Tip seen below).

If you think that a bird photography adventure to Ecuador might interest you make sure to e-mail me to sign up for the wish list for my workshop that will begin in 2013.
