photo by @chamiltonjames / Charlie Hamilton James. Red-and-green macaws fly from a clay lick just outside Manu National Park in the Peruvian Amazon. The macaws probably got spooked by something; they are very flighty when they visit the clay lick as predators could be lurking in the trees ready to catch them when they’re distracted eating the clay. With so little salt in the Amazon macaws and other birds and animals visit clay licks to stock up on minerals and salts. You’d think you’d see animals everywhere in a place like the Amazon, so teeming with life, but you don't. The 'green curtain’ of trees and other plants means you generally see very little. However wait a while patiently and stay quiet and the creatures of the forest will often start to reveal themselves. Macaws are of course different as they are bright and loud and make no effort to hide themselves as they fly overhead. Manu National Park is officially the most bio-diverse place on earth and well worth a trip for the adventurous traveller - if you get lucky you could see a jaguar on the boat journey in.

Video by @pedromcbride // Sunday night lights: Grand Canyon is one of the few landscapes you can visibly see from space. And when you are inside the canyon itself, it is one of the last places you can space itself. After spending over a year immersed inside this rock world, transecting it by foot, one of the things I miss most is that sweeping nightly river of stars of its night sky — which was so bright it even glowed above this monsoon storm that raged all night. To see more wild places follow @Pedromcbride Thanks to @richrudow for the support on this storm chasing mission. #grandcanyon#thecanyon#lightning#weather#stars#nature#humility#gratitude

Goblin Valley was designated a state park on August 24th, 1964, and contains some of the highest occurrences of hoodoos (or goblins as they're called here) in the world.
