AMAZON RAINFOREST

 
Red-and-Green Macaws DO grow on trees in the Amazon
The biodiversity in these wet tropical forests is mind-blowing. It is home to the largest collection of living plant and animal species in the world. One in ten known species on this planet lives in the Amazon Rainforest. Amazonia is home to around 2.5 million insect species, tens of thousands of plants, and more than 2,000 birds and mammals. So far, at least 40,000 plant species, 2,200 fishes, 1,294 birds, 427 mammals, 428 amphibians, and 378 reptiles have been scientifically classified within this region. One in five of all bird and fish species live here. The Scarlet Macaws above are indigenous to the American tropics. The photographer wrote, “Red-and-Green Macaws DO grow on trees in the Amazon.” Photo #1 by Billtacular
San Rafael Falls, Quijos River, Amazon, Ecuador
The San Rafael Falls and Quijos River are located at the foot of the highly active Reventador Volcano which rises out of the Amazon jungle east of the Andes. Based on archaeological evidence, it is believed that humans first inhabited this Amazon paradise at least 11,200 years ago. Photo #2 by Imagesunion

Star of the water - In the rivers of the Amazon
Star of the water – In the rivers of the Amazon. The photographer noted, “The water lily (Victoria regia), an aquatic plant is typical of the Amazon region. Its leaves are large and circular, with folded edges, forming a sort of basin. They can reach 2 meters in diameter. The leaves of the lily pad can withstand the weight of a small child in the water without sinking.” According to an Indian legend about the lilypad, “As its flowers open at night, the Indians liken to the moon and stars. They say that once in the Amazon, there lived an Indian girl that he wanted to become a star. At night, she liked to look at the sky to admire the stars. She thought that the moon could come pick her up on Earth and take it to heaven. One night, a beautiful Indian girl leaned over the side of the river, where the moon was reflected. She was mesmerized by the image of the moon, fell into the river and disappeared into the water. The moon then turned into a lilypad. So the flower of the lily pad is called ‘star of the waters’.” Photo #8 by Miriam C de Souza

Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest, Kotococha tribe 'Wild Boy'
The photographer wrote of the ‘Wild Boy’, “His eyes reflects the nostalgia of an almost extinct World. Wearing an Amazon Toucan, traditionally used only for the sacred dances and very special moments, this boy is learning from the Shamans the traditional dances of the Kotococha culture, a knowledge which is only transmitted from the shaman to the few chosen by word of mouth. Origin: Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest, Kotococha tribe.” Photo #15 by Gustavo Morejón

boating along Amazon
Folklore of Amazonas is nourished from legends and stories in which mystery and inexplicable things are always present. One example on Wikipedia includes “if you ask people about the lagoon of Cochaconga, they will say that it is enchanted. They say it has the ‘form of a neck’ and that with the smallest noise provoked by an animal or the scream of a person, there will be a tremendous thunderstorm in which an enormous monster will appear in the shape of cow. This monster will become mad with the strangers. That’s why, whoever passes by this remote place, does it with maximum precautions for not altering the local silence.” Photo #17 by NewWorldReview

Amazon Rainforest, seen from the Alto Madre de Dios river, in Peru. Before 1960, access to the forest’s interior was restricted and the Amazon jungle remained mostly intact. During the 1960s, farms were established based on crop cultivation and the slash and burn method. Deforestation was so considerable that the areas which were cleared of forest were visible to the naked eye from outer space. Photo #23 by Martin St-Amant
Strong drought in the Amazon rainforest
Strong drought in the Amazon rainforest. In 2005, parts of the Amazon basin experienced the worst drought in one hundred years. In 2010 the Amazon rainforest experienced another horrific drought, in some ways more extreme than in 2005. In a typical year the Amazon absorbs 1.5 gigatons of carbon dioxide; during 2005 instead 5 gigatons were released and in 2010 8 gigatons were released. Photo #24 by Hudson Alves

Just as there can be droughts, the rivers of Amazon suffer flooding for 4 or 5 months of the year. The photographer said that on a hot day, they went ‘rock jumping.’ Photo #25 by J.Gil Photography

Amazon rainforest, near Manaus, Brazil
Amazon rainforest, near Manaus, Brazil. Image taken from top of a 50 m tower for meteorological observations, and the top of vegetation canopy is typically 35 m. The image was taken within 30 minutes of a rain event, and a few white ‘clouds’ above the canopy are indicative of rapid evaporation from wet leaves after the rain. Much of the Amazon is still unexplored, many of its indigenous plants and animals are unknown . . . perhaps even plants yet to be discovered that could cure diseases that plague the people on our planet. The leaves and branches of the rainforest are so dense that it creates a “roof” that does not allow the sunlight to reach the ground. The ground remains dark, damp and waiting for discovery.

Amazon, Tropical rainforest, Peru
Another folklore of Amazona from Peru are attributed to certain animals. For example: The mochuelo that “freezes the soul”, or the “quien-quien” that makes fun of the travelers in the roads. When the singing crickets sounds like bells, it is supposedly foretelling of a “big evil.” Photo #30 by Roosevelt Garcia

Cây sồi và cơn gió

Một ngọn gió lớn thổi suốt ngày, cuốn những chiếc lá sồi bay đi thật xa. Rồi nó quật gãy các cành cây, làm xước vỏ cây sồi ấy cho tới khi cây sồi mệt mỏi và không còn một cái lá nào.
Thế nhưng, cây sồi vẫn bám chặt đất, trong khi những cây khác đều bị gió quật cho ngã rạp xuống hết. Ngọn gió mệt mỏi, đành đầu hàng và nói: “Cây sồi kia! Làm sao ngươi vẫn có thể đứng vững như thế?”

Cây sồi từ tốn trả lời: "Tôi biết bạn có thể bẽ gãy những nhánh cây của tôi, có thể tước từng chiếc lá của tôi và thổi chúng bay đi thật xa, có thể làm những cành cây lớn rung chuyển mạnh và khiến tôi lắc lư. Nhưng tôi có những nhánh rễ vươn dài, bám chặt vào trong lòng đất, và phát triển ngày càng mạnh mẽ kể từ khi tôi vươn mình lên khỏi mặt đất.
Bạn không bao giờ chạm đến chúng, và bạn nên biết rằng, chúng là phần sâu thẳm nhất của tôi. Cho đến tận hôm nay, tôi vẫn không chắc rằng mình có khả năng chịu đựng tốt đến thế nào. Tôi nhận ra rằng, tôi phải cảm ơn bạn rất nhiều, ngọn gió ạ! Tôi biết rằng, tôi mạnh mẽ hơn là tôi tưởng rất nhiều".
