Best of Belize 2013 – Part 1

My trip to Belize is only half way through and I’ve already managed to take more than 4500 photos!

One of the most biodiverse countries on the planet, Belize is home to a wide variety of insect life. This, combined with its relatively unique tropical ecosystems, makes it a great place for macro photography.

Here, up in the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest, there is very little light pollution which means that, on cloudless nights, the sky overflows with brilliant stars. At the top right, you can see part of the Milky Way (the whitish looking part of the sky).
