This picture was taken in the southern jungle of Peru at the Tambopata National Reserve. Â It is a large protected area where no hunting is allowed. Â So free to roam are juaguar, puma, bushmasters, anaconda, tapirs, etc . Â There was a small make-shift bench on the edge of the riverbed about 50-60 feet above the water. This is where I would sit and just listen to nothing but the musical sounds of the rainforest. I always tell people that Peru is a magical place. Â Sitting in the middle of the rainforest overlooking a tributary to the amazon river, completely cut off from civilization as we know it, a world of itâ€™s own, is a magical place. Â My most special moment over- looking this river was around midnight one evening. Â My great friend Tim had joined me this trip and we decided to journey from our hut at night to the riverâ€™s edge. We sat on the bench overlooking the river. Â Occasionally we would talk. Â Mostly we just sat there, taking everything in. Â Off in the distance over the river to the left was a thunderstorm what would illuminate the waterâ€™s surface with lightning. Over to the right was a waning moon doing the same. Â Surrounding us were the harmonic voices of the nighttime jungle. Â We didnâ€™t want to leave. Â Well over an hour had passed by before we looked at each other and realized that it was actually feeding time for jaguars and anacondas and other predators. Â That maybe it was time to head back to the safety of our hut.
