This is a little closer view of the structure of mangrove trees in a tidal estuary. The roots take hold in the shallow sand bar, but there are no leaves below the high water line. The tide flows in and out under the tree.
The tree provides habitat for wildlife, as I will show in my posts in the next week or so.
These wetlands are also important areas for water runoff during the rainy season.
We are showing photos of Bangkok, Thailand on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week. We loved it, and we hope you will enjoy our photos.
