A corn field is seen at the town of Estacion Islas in Buenos Aires province, November 25, 2012. The rains of late last week helped maintain a good level of moisture in Argentina's main crop belt, though some areas are still under water despite the dry weather of recent days, a meteorologist said Tuesday. Many analysts expect record production of soybeans and corn in the marketing year 2012/13 in Argentina, one of the world's biggest food exporters, thanks to good rains linked to the El Nino climate phenomenon. But the extensive rainfall that began in August also brought flooding that has forced some farmers to abandon their sowing plans in the most affected regions.

Tourists stand in front of huts that form part of the Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort where a turtle digs for food amongst the coral in the island's lagoon, north-east of the town of Bundaberg in Queensland, Australia, June 9, 2015. UNESCO World Heritage delegates recently snorkelled on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, thousands of coral reefs, which stretch over 2,000 km off the northeast coast. Surrounded by manta rays, dolphins and reef sharks, their mission was to check the health of the world's largest living ecosystem, which brings in billions of dollars a year in tourism. Some coral has been badly damaged and animal species, including dugong and large green turtles, are threatened. UNESCO will say on Wednesday whether it will place the reef on a list of endangered World Heritage sites, a move the Australian government wants to avoid at all costs, having lobbied hard overseas. Earlier this year, UNESCO said the reef's outlook was "poor". REUTERS/David Gray TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY
