A lone South American Sea Lion on the rocks of Paracas, Peru.
My trips to Peru generally involved the more classic routes like Amazona, Lima and the Andes. During one of my trips to the region, I was able to break away for a week trip to the Ica and Paracas Coast of Peru! I was also able to get on a small plane for an hour flight over the famous Nazca Lines in the vast Nazca Desert.
This trip was surprisingly rich in wildlife. South American Sea Lions were plentiful on the Ballestas Islands of Paracas. I was also able to see many fascinating birds like Humboldt Penguins, Inca Terns, Peruvian Boobies, Guanay and Red-legged Cormorants, Chilean Flamingos and many many more.
