Home Sweet Home
Since about one month ago we left the region of the Pantanal and Bonito (State of Mato Grosso do Sul), where I lived and photographed for almost 13 years, starting a new project living by the Atlantic Rainforest in São Paulo State.
We are now at the Japi Mountains, an important remnant of the Atlantic Forest located 40 km (25 mi) north from the city of São Paulo, protected by various legal issues and by the environmental awareness of many of its inhabitants. The region’s bird list accounts for about 235 species, of which we already saw more than 50 without even leaving home!
This means a lot of projects coming up - a new environment, new landscapes and species from the fauna and the flora waiting to be observed and photographed!
