Iguassu Falls: Argentina

It’s been a long, cold winter.  I just heard that we’re in for another blast of frigid air so I decided to skip ahead and share a few pictures from Iguassu Falls, a sub-tropical climate.  After Patagonia and before returning home, we went to Iguassu Falls, on the border between Brazil, Argentina, and Paraguay for a few days.

I thought it would be nice to see something warm and green. The air was humid and fragrant. Butterflies of all colors flitted around.

At the entrance to the Devil's Throat viewpoint, a butterfly fluttered aroiund.

Look carefully to see the rainbow. The falls at Devil’s Throat created a lot of mist.

And finally, a plush-crested jay, which is basically an Argentine blue jay, but it felt magical to be so close to this magnificently colored animal.

The plush-crested jay.  It wasn't afraid to check out the tourists.

Enjoy!  Just a reminder that Spring is coming!
