The Parana River delta is a huge forested marshland about 20 miles northeast of Buenos Aires,
Argentina. The area is a very popular tour destination. Guided boat tours can be taken into
this vast labyrinth of marsh and trees. The Parana River delta is one of the world's greatest
bird-watching destinations. This image highlights the striking contrast between dense forest
and wetland marshes, and the deep blue ribbon of the Parana River.
