Plane overhead!

Can you see the dragonfly?

Pesky plane

What could ever possible break the solitude ...

Of a walk in the remote reaches of The Big Cypress.

Answer: An overhead small engine plane.

Swamp's "Old Faithful"

No, you can't set your watch to them ...

And some days it doesn't rain at all.

Historical view of monthly rainfall
in the Big Cypress.  Can you see the four

But over the long haul, south Florida's wet season is pretty predictable ...

With June, July, August and September being its four core months.


That makes those afternoon clouds "Old Faithful" in my book!
