These photographs were taken during a Naturetrek holiday to the Atlantic rain forest in south-east Brazil. We stayed at a lodge – Serra dos Tucanos – situated in the heart of the Tres Picos State Park. The lodge is set in 50 acres of rain forest with 205 species of birds, of which sixty are Atlantic rain forest endemics. In addition to birds there are many butterflies, mammals, moths, amphibians and reptiles.
