The boat scene
We took an early morning boat ride before leaving the Mato Grosso Hotel. Brazil Pantanal.
Early morning August 8, 2013 as I set off for a walk in the Brazil Pantanal.
The Pausada Rio Claro seems to be a place where young Brazilians come for a weekend to relax around the pool. We were more interested in the gorgeous birds everywhere.
That evening we took a boat ride on the Claro River.
The next morning we walked about, here is Sharon (unfortunately without bug spray) shooting the local and very vocal birds.
We start out for our next lodging at Pausa Alegre, as usual, pausing many times to photograph the scenery and wildlife.
Beautiful blooming Piuva tree. Most were just starting to bloom.
Home of the Giant Otters
Back out on the Claro River before we leave this lodge.
Gaucho and dog (not pleasant to see the dog struggling in the heat)
