PANAMA – Gamboa and El Valle

IMG_6806We recently had the good fortune to spend 6 days in Panama – what a beautiful country!! IMG_6805The stunning BIRDS, the lush landscapes, the clean, clear, fresh air, the warm and friendly people . . . IMG_6804I only wish I could have taken photos of ALL the birds we saw. Alas, so much to see, so little time. . .

  1. Beautiful post. Great shots. The beauty of panama is you never know what you might see. I once saw a red capped manakin who sadly, eluded my shutter as he flew home.
