Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at India’s Nalabana Bird Sanctuary in Chilika Lake.

Chilika Lake is the biggest lagoon in India, where fresh water from rivers mixes with salt water from the Bay of Bengal, which helps promote a wide diversity of species.

This image was captured by the Advanced Land Imager (ALI) on board the Earth Observing-1 satellite.
