This is a large tree covered in Spanish Moss. It was in a lake right off a swamp. In the tree is a Great Blue Heron. Floating in the water a pair of Alligators.

The photo has a little bit of everything, including a dark blue filter.

Why the filter? Swamp photos are just really busy, this one more than most. I experimented with a green and blue filter.

And here it is.

It makes perfect sense! It’s also a great place to photograph them without too much work.

These birds flew up and down the piers working the ships. When tired, or not hungry, they flopped down somewhere and took a nap.
