    Cataratas del Iguazu / Iguazu Falls (56K death)

    Since I'm pretty much of a lurker in this forum, here are some pictures I took this past Tuesday while on Misiones to balance out
    Iguazu Falls - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Once you arrive to the Reserve, one of the first things you see when you start walking the thin bridges that take you through the forrest is that Coaties are very pushy demanding food. You're not suposed to feed them, but they're so cute some people can't resist doing it.






    As you keep walking, you start to see what you've been hearing for some time now... Waterfalls extravaganza, all over the place.












    One of the attractions there is to ride a boat to get almost inside the waterfalls.






    Island in the middle of the falls.




    Another fall.








    And another.




    While you walk in those bridges, you can see a lot of local flora and fauna.

    Tucan.




    Huge ant.




    And a colorful spider.




    Not all falls are huge, but they are pretty nonetheless.






    There are some places that just invite you for a bath too.




    Once you've walked both the Inferior and Superior circuits, you go back to a mini train station to go to the main attraction, the Garganta del Diablo.

    Coaties keep on asking for foods.








    Since there's just one set of rails, sometimes you have to wait a bit.




    But you relax while watching the forrest.




    Once you arrive to the station, you're good to keep walking towards the falls.




    You take some pictures of cool stuff...










    ... and start walking the bridges again, keeping in mind you need to mind your surroundings.




    After walking for some time, crossing some rivers and watching other falls, you get to the final segment.




    And this is how the main waterfalls look from the distance... Nothing really impressive at all.




    Until you actually get there! Behold, the Garganta del Diablo (Devil's Throat)
















    Zoomed in, the water makes beautiful organic-like patterns, it's mesmerizing to watch it turn shapes while falling down.






    Side falls.






    And the river downstream along with more falls.




    Birds loved cookies!






    Some night city pictures once we're back in Puerto Iguazu.










    And hotel cats the next morning cos I do love cats.






    I hope you've enjoyed the pics!

    Those water shape shots at devils throat are wonderful! What camera did you use for these?

    Thanks! A Nikon D700 with either an old 28-85 AF or a 35 1.8 (It's DX, but on close ups it's still usable in FF)
