    My wife and I took a late honeymoon to Peru this past August. We visited Lima, Machu Picchu, and the Amazon Rainforest.

    The first two pictures are of owl monkeys. They are nocturnal, but poked their heads out of their home to see what was lurking. They were 30 feet up in a tree, but we were fortunate enough to have a guide spot them and a good lens to get a close-up. They stared us down as we walked past the tree and deeper into the forest.

    The third picture is the iconic picture of Machu Picchu. You probably get this picture every day, but it truly is a remarkable site. Its impossible to take a bad picture of Machu Picchu, especially from this angle with its sister peak Huayna Picchu in the background.
