Photographer's Note

This is a view of a pasture during the winter in central Paran. These kind of grass is from Africa and last for some months, ending its cycle of life during the winter when the rains aren't so big and when the cold winds or even frosts damage them all.Cattle is obligated to eat the dead leaves and it is a very bad time for these animals. At the end of September the spring gives more rains and pasture begins a new cycle of life in the hot months of the year. This white cattle is called Nelore and it came from India in the last century; it is a very rustic and resistent kind of cattle and they deal well with bad conditions of pasture and weather. You can see some jeriv-palm trees in the top.
