Rain nips spring drought in bud

Here's a sad sight:

The swamp in late spring when even the pond apple go dry.

It doesn't happen every year ...

And some years when it does, not for long.

Days after I filmed this video it rained.

Just like that the pond apple filled back up (a few inches at least).

But still shallow compared to summer depths of two feet!
