Kaway Swamp, Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, Belize

Kaway Swamp, Warrie Trail, Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary (CBWS), Stann Creek, Belize - This Kaway swamp is one of my favorite places in the CBWS. The early morning light, the fog and mist, the bromeliands and lianas create a dreamy landscape straight out of your imagination. What a photograph can not offer are the other senses - the birds and frogs establishing territories and attracting mates, the smell of decaying leaves in stagnant water, the sweat dripping in 100% humidity and the constant buzz of insects ... not an easy place to work but ohhh so worth it.
