A wildlife-filled paradise
The region surrounding Bonito, a small town situated south of the Pantanal wetland in the western Brazilian state of Mato Grosso do Sul, is a wildlife-filled paradise of turquoise rivers and lakes, forested hills and massive subterranean caverns. Here, a red-green macaw takes flight over the Buraco das Araras, a giant doline (sinkhole) located 50km from Bonito. Flocks of these beautifully plumaged birds regularly fly in and around the doline at dawn and dusk.
The heart-stopping shots are the work of aerial photographer Jason Hawkes who developed a love of Britain ‘s varied landscape since taking his first flying lesson 20 years ago.
