Bueng Boraphet or Boraphet Marsh is the largest freshwater swamp and lake in Thailand. It is spread over more than 200 square kilometres in Nakhon Sawan province and is home to almost 200 species of wild animals, birds and plants.
Veteran lensman Artid Nima refers to Bueng Boraphet as a lake of life and often heads to the area to snap the birds and aquatic animals living among the pinkish-red lotuses. He says that the cold temperatures in the north of Thailand draw thousands of migratory birds, making this time of year the perfect period for birdwatching.
