Estas fotografías son tres claros ejemplos de que en muy contadas ocasiones las mejores tomas se obtienen en el momento mas impensado sin necesitar caminar para lograr un acercamiento con una especie determinada. Las fotos las obtuve en la Reserva Yateí en el mes de Octubre en horas de la siesta cuando me llevé un […]
