The telephoto lens closes the distance between the photographer and whatever they're photographing, it's ideal for photographing wildlife. It'll pull a distant subject closer, which means one can get frame-filling shots of wildlife, people or a particular aspect of the landscape.
Here are a few of the photographs taken with a telephoto lens only from lush and fertile tropical San Luis de Palenque on the shores of Rio Pauto to Orocue, a remote fishing village on the shores of Rio Meta, surrounded by dusty and spiky savanna grasslands and indigenous reserves. Both places offer spectacular birding, wild and wonderful natural places and the absolute friendliest people providing insights into their daily lives and culture. Heart-warming, beautiful, dreamy, rustic and exotic are just a few words to describe the experience.
