50 nature photos



The following 50 photos were taken during the course of my reporting and research in 2009 [Page 3 of 3]. I have only included nature and wildlife subjects from Laos, Thailand, Costa Rica, Brazil, Indonesia, California, and Madagascar, although I also took pictures of other subjects and spent time in other countries.



Last year’s photos can be found here.



These are low quality, low resolutions shots but all of these images are available in high resolution. See mongabay.zenfolio.com for high resolution versions of these and other pictures.



All photos were taken by Rhett A. Butler.
