The left side of this image shows part of the Pantanal, a tropical wetland that lies mostly within the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso do Sul but extends into Mato Grosso as well as into portions of Bolivia and Paraguay.

This image focuses on the part in the two aforementioned Brazilian states. As one moves eastward, out of the wetlands area, the terrain becomes speckled reddish tan and green. Many agricultural fields can be observed in this part of the image.
