Poyang Lake, China's largest freshwater lake, entered its dry season beginning on Nov 6. Now the lake, located in Jiujiang, Jiangxi province, has transformed into a sea of flowers and grass. This time of year is the best season for visitors to view the beauty of the natural site, and many citizens are already doing just that. According to some experts, the surface area of Poyang Lake is less than one-eighth the total of its wet season peak. Though this shrinkage is a natural phenomenon, some environmental protection awareness is still in order.
