In April 2014 I spent a week with a group of bat biologist colleagues at Lamanai Outpost Lodge in Orange Walk District (north central Belize). The lodge is located on the banks of a long, spring-fed lagoon (New River) in the middle of an ancient Maya city. It is on the edge of Indian Church village about a mile from a Maya archeological park. These photos represent a mixture of documentary and more artistic images.
