Ilha Grande (pronounced Granje) is a small island just off the coast of Brazil and about 60 miles West of Rio. This is a wonderfully unspoilt island due, in part, to the fact that until about 20 years ago it was home to a prison for Brazil's most dangerous convicts!

It is now subject to stringent planning controls and most of the island is part of a State Park. Outside the single town of Abraio, there are no roads - just a few wider tracks and a network of trails. No motorised transport is allowed with the exception of a few emergency vehicles, a school mini-bus plus a tractor and trailer dustcart.

If you want to get around, it's either by boat or on foot. I captured this bromeliad on a rainforest trail late one morning.

The ultimate backyardbird ?? (certainly for where I live)
I was preparing the evening meal a short while ago, when I glanced out of the window to see this male Sparrowhawk on the fence very close to the house. Managed to get to the camera and get a few shots through the kitchen window. This is uncropped @ 420mm
