Butterflies of the Peruvian Amazon

After flying from Cusco to Puerto Maldonado we took a boat ride to the Madre de Dios area where we arrived at Cayman Lodge which was our home for two nights.

On the following day, we took an eight hour hike through the jungle around the lodge including taking canoes out onto two lakes.  We were able to see amazing wildlife including monkey’s, birds and an anaconda.

We were also greeted by some of the most beautiful butterflies I have ever seen.  Some of the butterflies came to say hello and landed on us while others frolicked in the sun on old timber canoes.
