Silent scream of spring swamp

Here's an aerial view of a cypress dome near East Crossing Strand.

The open spot in the middle is the deepest ... just ask a gator
The road in the background is Alligator Alley.

Ground view of same dome
As of early April, as seen on the ground, there's still a thin pool in the center, but the "cypress-trunk" staff gages scream in their own silent way:

"Hey sky, water is way down!"

I see the water marks on the trees. They're crying out for rain.
Alligator Alley sounds a little ominous!
