13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
I was studying medicinal plants in the Peruvian Amazon through a program with the University of Maryland, and was fascinated by the myriad of bugs and insects around and their relationships with these plants. Looking back on it, this photo certainly brings back joy and gratefulness to be able to study and explore such beauty in our world. To me, a sustainable travel project is a lens from our hectic daily lives into the natural world, bringing true appreciation for what we do not see every day and allowing us to feel appreciative. In the end, this can bring internal motivation to conserve.
