That's indeed very green! Still a master composition from you Marilyn! Well done!

Greetings from Ria

Hi Marilyn. I like this the best of your "Jungle Series" just posted. It feels like your totally encased in the green, and there's no part of the frame that doesn't have something visually interesting going on.

Thank you, Ria and Hank. I appreciate your appreciation.

I was pessimistic about the prospects of photographing the rainforest. You know, Hank, and you've probably observed, Ria, that composition is important to me--with strong geometric elements when possible! And in the rainforest, well ... "It's a jungle out there!" Thus I was glad to see that that I could get some images I liked on my one arduous (for me) jungle walk, and I'm pleased that you find them successful.

Beautiful nature-shot...

Greetings from Germany, Mario

I like the composition, color and contrast of this photo which puts me right into the jungle; I can almost feel it. Well done Marilyn.

Best regards, Larry

I second Larry's opinion, thank you for putting me 'right into the jungle', Marilyn -- with-out the bugs, of course!

Happy trails, Bruce

Very nice light and shadow. Great composition.

Looking at that map, you appear to be near a river -- the way it widens, I assume influenced by a dam -- that runs through a completely forested area that is surrounded by towns and farms. Is that green belt a park or preserve of some kind?

Regards, Bryan

I'm glad I've been able to transport you, Bruce, to a bug-free jungle!! Actually things weren't bad while we were there.

Thanks, Bryan, for your comment. Most of the forested area on the map is the bi-national park that includes Iguazu Falls. The owner of Yacutinga Lodge (where we stayed and where I took this) is passionate about his efforts to safeguard this point of land across from the park in order to provide, as he put it, a corridor. This is a private preserve because of his work.

Greetings, Marilyn

Natalya, Я огорченн что я настолько медленн в благодарить вас.

Thank you for exploring the jungle with me, Scott, and greetings from Canada.
