The majority of photographs in this gallery was made on our first trip to Ecuador in 2011.
In 2012 we added some shots from our third trip on our way to and back from the Amazone.
We visited several places on the east and west slope of the Andes in the northern part of Ecuador.
Our tours were organized by Mindo Birding Tours (Mrs.Jane Lyons),
and we had excellent help of two guides, Gabriel Bucheli and Dusan Brinkhuizen.
About 300 different species were spotted by us on the first tour of two weeks,
and we were able to photograph more than hundred different species.
We used two Canon lenses, the 800mm F5.6 and the 300mm F2.8, both with and without 1,4 converter.
