Photographer's Note

Sunday July 18 to 8 AM... a temperature that as soon as he reaches 3ºC (37ºF) I decided to visit with my camera a special site.

The Costanera Sur Ecological Reserve is a green area having unique features located by the River Plate, in the southern corner of the city of Buenos Aires. A few blocks away from the heart of the City and government buildings, the Reserve offers a different promenade where people can come into else contact with wildlife.
Many portenios (therefore he is called to the inhabitants of here), still do not know the existence of the same one.

A great variety of trees, grasses and shrubs typical of the Delta and the coast of the River Plate can be appreciated from the trails. Vast Pampas grasslands add to “aliso de río” and native willow woods. In the riverside small groups of “ceibos” grow from seeds brought in by the water. Reedmace and reeds act as a background for ponds where a varied fauna lives. Bird species typical of the Pampas wetlands prevail.

Other zoological species are present, though not so easily seen: several fish species, many amphibians and reptiles, some mammal, countless insects and other invertebrates that can be found in the water, among the plants, or when crossing trails.

From one of its footpaths and to initiate the sequence of photos obtained here, the image catches a glance from the city to few meters of the entrance of the reserve.

The photo is original, only modified slightly in saturation to optimize the reflection.
