Dragonfly

The Einot Timsah (Einot = Spring, Timsah = Crocodile) Nature Reserve is located at the foot of the Carmel Mountains in Israel.

 

The crocodiles inhabited these swamps until the beginning of the 20th century. This is the only a reminiscent of how the swamps looked like in this area before they were drained during the 1950'. The spring water is not pumped due to its high salinity.
