Sweet Water

Some say future wars will be because of lack of water. However natural reservoirs like this in the high Andes of central Colombia are being destroyed daily. This picture was taken in a paramo ecosystem near Bogota, while I was searching for the elusive andean bear. Sadly, the mountain tapir, the other big mammal living in the paramo disappeared from this place several years ago. Deer and other endangered species are under risk too.

  1. It's so sad to know that the tapirs are gone from this region. Your photo is outstanding. I hope you'll continue to post them, because I enjoy seeing those areas I have only read about for so many years.
