Reviewing 2019

Somehow it’s April already and I have only now had time to review last year, being stuck inside due to the coronavirus situation, to see what goals I was able to accomplish from my bucket list. I traveled to ten different countries, each filled with amazing wildlife and people.

I am including only the highlights from this year in this post (for the full list just click the link above). I am also only showing one or two images of each species/location, if you want to see all the pictures from that subject just click that name and the link will take you to the appropriate gallery.
