Amazon Roots

This image is of tree roots on the Peruvian Amazon River. Some trees have adapted to waterproof their roots by holding air pockets to protect themselves in the wet season. The Amazon River in South America is the largest river by discharge volume of water in the world, and by some definitions it is the longest. The high water season on the Amazon lasts from around December until May, with the water at its peak in March and April. During this time, the entire river network becomes flooded and waterways that were too shallow or too narrow to explore during the low water season, suddenly become navigable.
