Gallery of Images

Our trip was planned around the mass migration of North American raptors through the isthmus of Panama, as well as a quest to find a Harpy Eagle. It was an incredible journey that far exceeded our hopes. The three primary photographers, Tom Mayer, Larry Rimer, and Gail Garber returned with a lovely assortment of images that we share with you in this gallery.
