    So I'm off to visit these two places on Thursday. I'm happy with my gear selection etc but I'd be interested in any tips of anyone else who may have visited.
    We will be travelling around and doing a small ship cruise. I'm hoping to get some interesting shots...

    You're heading for very different worlds…

    Ecuador is mostly damp and hot at lower altitudes
    as the islands are extremely dry and very hot!

    Yes, luckily we are mainly at higher altitudes:
    Quito
    Avenue of the Volcanos
    Cotapaxi
    The Islands
    Otavalo
    and finally a couple of days in the cloud forest (where it will be very humid)

    When I went the best advice was to take knee pads. Look silly but good advice. Enjoy

    I have been to cloud forest in Colombia and although humid they are very pleasant, not too hot nor cold, also very few mosquitoes. One problem with bird photography is the light, in the cloud forest, it can be quite poor.

    Just got back.
    OMG brilliant time - pictures to follow when I get organised.

    PS Hummingbirds are tricky little buggers to photograph on the wing!
