The island of Ilha Grande has some amazing wildlife. I saw monkeys and some of the most beautiful butterflies I have ever seen but this was by far the most interesting insect that I saw. The insect looked exactly like a leaf and even the legs looked like twigs...talk about good camouflage.

The island life
My first morning on the island of Ilha Grande I went to get tea and stopped along the path and was captured by this man making his way out to his boat. He moved with such ease and it was so peaceful to witness his morning routine. I knew right then that it wasn't going to be hard to adjust to the island life.
