Actually two scenes.
Above has a little of everything. Egret, Great Blue, Anhinga, and of course a floating head (Alligator) under the outstretched branch.
A typical scene in one of the large marshlands.
The second, with an Anhinga, shows how dense the marsh grasses grow. Miles of these grass lands.
The bird is sitting on an old wooden structure that we can only guess what it’s original use was.
ACE Basin, South Carolina.
