Humedales de la Orinoquia Colombia Venezuela book

We got 4 images on the front cover of the magnificent Humedales de la Orinoquia (Colombia-Venezuela) book. This was such an honor for me. The full page front cover image (Rainforest Clear Water Stream DSC07738), and the 2 small images (Amazon Leaf Fish Monocirrhus polyacanthus 237) and (Underwater Lily Pads DSC06349) were taken by me and the third small image was taken by my good friend, Fernando Chan. It is the first time that I appear on the front cover of a book. I have had images on front covers before, but not actually me in person. The book also features one of my images as a full page inside cover (Orinoco River Shipwreck DSC08855and the images on pages 4, 10, 16, 45, 95, 103, 106, 107, 152, 192, 208, 219, 231, 232, and 233. All these images were given out for free in name of science, following our Mission and Cause guidelines. The book is of free distribution and can be downloaded at:
