Another one from the Iberá marshes. This is not the best photo, I know. In my defense, the light-conditions were the worst possible: midday, sun up above, surrounded by shiny water... do the math. But anyway, I like the scene and wanted to share as there are many nature lovers here and can't see these animals in the wild.
So, what you see is a common scene in the Iberá marshes (btw, Iberá means "shiny waters" in native tongue). It's really impressive to see all these different animals in one place, and it's all wild!
In this case, a couple of Chajá (Southern screamer), Carpincho (Capybara) and a Yacaré (yacaré caiman), all of them on an embalsado (a floating island composed of vegetation). You can appreciate how big the southern screamer and the capybaras are, compared to the caiman.
Out of frame, at the end of the embalsado we found a curiyú resting, is a type of anaconda -smaller, just 4 or 5mt long-.
