Swamp ladder (in full flood mode)

From highest to lowest,

Here's a look at the swamp's major plant communities (under water!).

Can you see the water in each photo?

From top to bottom (and shallowest to deepest), this photo collage shows late September water levels in a pine island (3 inches deep), a marl prairie (10 inches deep), a cypress dome (1.5 ft deep), a pond apple forest (2.3 ft deep) and a refugia pool (??? - probably 4-5 ft deep).
