Travel Photo of the Day: Sunset in The Pantanal, Brazil

This shot was snapped at sunset, May 2010, as were crossing the sprawling nature reserve of Brazil known as The Pantanal in a jeep, trying to spot birds and animals. Although less known than the Amazonian basin of Brazil, it is no less spectacular, up to 75,000 square miles of pristine wilderness and home to 3,500 plant species,  1000 bird species, 400 fish species, 300 mammalian species, 480 reptile species and over 9000 different subspecies of invertebrates.
