Photographer's Note

Victoria regia is the biggest of the water lilies, the leaves can grow up to 3m in diameter. It's impressive to see this giant lilies floating on the water on the Tarapoto lake. On this picture you can see the semi dead leaves. I have picture of live plants but on this one you can see how big they are in confront with the boat.
When the boat engine stop, you can hear only the sound of animals on the distant trees and the occasional passing Ara parrots and some other birds.
