"Textbook" pine island?

Shown below is an island full of pine trees ...

In the middle of a pond.

Water surrounding this pine island
in Everglades Nat'l Park was too deep to walk to
even in the dry season, February 2015

But don't be confused with the real thing:

Proper pine islands in the swamp are surrounded by a sea of marl prairie and cypress, the depth of which are usually a few inches to a foot.

Water sounding this pine island
in Big Cypress Nat'l Preserve was only 1 foot deep
even during peak wet season, August 2011

The correct answer is B.
