Photographer's Note

The Obed swamp – This swamp has been famous worldwide since the mid 19th century, when stories of a ‘bird heaven’ started. Once a famous ornithological reserve and today a special nature reserve, this vast swamp-forest complex is located along the Sava river in the south of Srem (Vojvodina, Serbia). The greatest value of this area lies in its authentic combination of stagnant tributaries, ponds, pits, swamp vegetation, wet meadows and forests with exceptional diversity of ecosystems and species, especially the endangered ones. Obedska bara is one of the few remaining inundated marshes with distinctive features, such as hundred years old mixed English oak forests, waterfowl colonies and numerous natural rarities.

This spring, the level of the Sava River was low, so the water receded and the meadow was occupied by cows. Just a few tens of meters from the ento complex from yesterday's photo.
