Fauna of Esteros del Iberá

The Esteros del Iberá is the most important wetland in Argentina, and one of the largest in South America. It consists of a large mosaic of grassland, forest, and lagoons with islands of floating vegetation (embalsados). These environmental conditions nurture a rich variety of animal species, which in some places do not shy away from people, which makes them easy to watch and photograph. The most charismatic species are the marsh deer, two caiman species, the river otter, the capybara, the strange-tailed tyrant, the yellow anaconda, and a great number of water and land birds.
Over the last few years I’ve been able to visit this beautiful place many times. Please enjoy some of the photos taken during those trips.
