Swamp extremes

You know it's really wet in the swamp ...

When the water's edge creeps into the pine islands.

Water in the pines!
As seen in August

And you know its really dry in the swamp ...

When even the alligator holes in the middle of the cypress domes go dry.

A last gasp puddle
in the middle of a cypress dome
as seen in early April

It's going to take a little while,

But after a long dry season the swamp is finally starting to fill back up.
