Photo Tour in the South of Italy
Southern Italy is known and visited by the large public. It is a virgin and underpopulated territory where nature is still king and the local populations have always been intimately connected with the extraordinary place where they live.
Throughout history entire cities were dug into the rocks, thus disappearing from sight and blending perfectly with the landscape. Matera is still today a clear example of rock city, still inhabited by both humans and Lesser Kestrels ,which have here the largest colony in Europe.
Like any peninsula in the Mediterranean sea, also the Italian peninsula hosts a large number of endemic species particularly from a herpetological point of view: Italian Aesculapian snake, Southern spectacled salamander, Italian newt, Appennine yellow-bellied toad, etc.
Also estremely interesting are the orchids: over 100 species are reported in Basilicata, among which Ophrys pseudoatrata, Late spider orchid subsp. posidonia and Sombre bee-orchid subsp. lucana.
We will also have the possibility to take advantage of the photographic hides of a private INNATE reserve "Wild Lucania".
These are dedicated to birds: Red Kite, Black Kite, Griffon Vulture, Cirl Bunting, Subalpine Warbler and many more.
Therefore it will be a generalist tour dedicated to both bird and macro photography and landscape photography. This will allow the photographer to get the most of the fascinating region of Lucania and its facet.
