Today, I woke up and raced outside to photo the mist coming up from the swamp.
I found an incredible bird-of-prey [anyone know what he is?] waiting for me-- and a FIELD of spider webs... all wet with dew and shiney from the backlit of the sun.
Just when I thought there was nothing magical to see... it was overwhelmingly beautiful.
I went to the SLOUGH.. to see birds and gators...
saw a coot, anhinga, many gators... and soft shell turtle digging her nest... and many spiders and bugs...
It was wonderful.
I will return again tonight...
Yesterday, I drove 12 miles to shoot the sunset from Pay-a-ho-kee Point-- but.... forgot my CAMERA! [can you believe???}
anyway, drove all the way back to my cabin... and had to content myself with shooting the sunset from a different vantage point. Tonight.. I may repeat my quest...
It is rainy now.. thunderstorms.
Spent the day doing a small painting.
I will go to the BIG CYPRESS SWAMP tomorrow. It's the other side of the EVERGLADES.
