The Botanical Park of Inhotim contains mainly rare tropical ornamental species from Brazil and around the world. There are 45 hectares of landscaping and five ornamental lakes, with a total water surface of over 3.5 hectares.

Commitment to the environment and the mitigation of impacts are some of the goals of Inhotim. The park maintenance adopts sustainable stewardship techniques mainly with regard to the use of organic products - biofertilizers, compost, natural fungicides, and biological control microorganisms.

All surplus water from the lakes, irrigation and fish farming is returned to nature, free of any contamination.

The management of bird populations and the attraction exerted by native species contribute to a good balance of the environment, restoring its natural harmony. As an example, we can cite the cataloguing of 136 species of birds so far in the Tropical Park. This is important because the park is an anthropic area, with eucalyptus reforestation, rehabilitated after years of impacts.

Inhotim is currently one of the most expressive Tropical Parks in Brazil, not only due to its landscaping ensemble but also to its diversity of botanical collections, and the management and use of these treasures.

Olá Lucas.
Um belo Cisne Branco muito bem registrado por suas lentes!
Ótima coloração e detalhes.
Gostei da nota também... pra ser sincero, conheço Brumadinho/MG, mas não sabia da existência do Parque.

Hi Lucas.
Wonderful portrait work. I like great exposure, perfect lighting, nice rich olours and ultimate details of all parts of swan image. I also like nice and very suitable for the main subject smooth BG. Well done and best regards.
P.S. Many thanks for kind comments to my last shot. I am very pleased.

Ciao Lucas, splendid portrait of wonderful swan with lovely details and good colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Lucas,
Complete DOF, nice sharp details..
Good color, just a bit OE at the back of the head.
I would compose with slightly less space behind, just a suggestion.

Olá Lucas!

Amei as cores...os detalhes, nitidez e luz estão ótimos. Belo cisne!
Grande abraço,

Olá grande Lucas,
Está começando a aparecer nos outros TL e isso é muito bom.
Este cisne, por exemplo, está um primor.
A textura das penas banhada pela luz é fantástica.

Olá Lucas,
Um close com um foco preciso! A água ao fundo ficou parecendo seda. A nota está excelente.
Obrigada por partilhar,
