Recipes for a Small World

With Lucas Bustamante
Available any time.

A totally great experience

This tour looks through magnification of specialized species in the Amazon basin and western cloud forests of northern Ecuador. We will not be confining ourselves to one family or genera instead we will be looking at the tiny things whose adaptations often camouflage and hide them from predators and other observers. We’ll explore photographic techniques used to enter this small world.
