Swamp of illusions

Looks can be deceiving in the swamp ...

As illustrated in the photo below.

As seen in Mullet Slough
looking to the southeast


Do you see the rolling hills in the background?

They are actually holes.


And do you see the recessed patch of green in the middle?

That's actually the only dry ground in sight.


And what look like deeper-looking holes in the foreground?

They are little oases of herbaceous marsh.
