Pictures from the Peruvian Amazon

These are photos I took while on a tropical fish collecting expedition in the Peruvian Amazon area in July of 1995. The organizer, Ron Belliveau (aka "fishman"), has a more detailed description of the trip. A fellow traveler, Francis O'Carroll, also has a very nice web page with some excellent pictures of his own.
