Description
I had the opportunity to travel to the southern Amazon basin in late May. I was focused on trying to get photographs of some of the beautiful bird life of this region, but I happened to look over at a group of about twenty capybaras that had been lounging along the edge of the Rio Claro since sunrise. I'd gotten some shots of them earlier, but this time there was this really nice tender moment between an adult and a juvenile. Fortunately I was able to get my camera around and focused in time to capture one frame before they moved apart again!
