      1. I didn't even notice lol. I guess you were already a world-class nature photographer since then. Actually, I've recently made an observation; while browsing wildlife photography on Instagram and then joining JD last year there are actually better wildlife photographers here than some of the famous ones on IG...with a lot better stories as well.

        1. Awww, I'm nothing special, Wesley, mediocre at best. And perfectly fine with it.
          You do raise an interesting point regarding social media success. The attention is not fairly divided based on merit/skill, it's basically who is best in marketing.

The Yacare caiman is a species of caiman found in central South America, including northeastern Argentina, Uruguay, southeastern Peru, eastern Bolivia, central/southwest Brazil, and the rivers of Paraguay. About 10 million individual Yacare caimans exist within the Brazilian "pantanal", representing what is quite possibly the largest single crocodilian population on Earth.
