a view from the river, Black Capped Donacobius in Water Hyacinth. My visit to Brazil was timed to coordinate with winter. Winter in Brazil means no rain and the rivers get quite low bringing many animals to a small area. It also means that the Pantanal is easily accessible. The Pantanal is a natural region encompassing the world's largest wetland. During the rainy season 80% of the area is covered by water.
