I shot this trying to make the Great Egret stand out against the dark background. Not my usual swamp/marsh scene.
After looking at the shots I realized just how big the trunk and roots of this old Oak were.
Typical open-grown trees reach 20 meters (65.5 feet) in height, with a limb spread of nearly 27 meters (88.5 feet). Their lower limbs often sweep down towards the ground before curving up again.
These are slow growing trees but easily live several hundreds years,
Spanish Moss mostly grows on these trees also.
