Photographer's Note

This is a second photo of this forest that I am posting here on TE. The first is here
This is Pedra Branca, the biggest urban forest of the world, located in Rio de Janeiro city. When I visited this forest, I was very impressed to know it for two reasons..
First, everyone says here that the biggest urban forest is Tijuca (another forest well known by tourists here). The biologist explained to me that nowadays Pedra Branca is considered the biggest because formerly the forest was located in the contry side, but nowadays the city has grown crowded and what was the country isn't anymore. The second reason for me to be impressed is because I just wonder how the forest still survives among more than 15 million people that live in Rio..
