I know you think the Everglades is a swamp.
A great, big, stagnant swamp.
But it's not.
It's alive. Really alive.
You just have to look closely.
Be open to the possibility.
It's full of critters.
Some are stinky.
Some are rare and scary and sweet.
(American Crocodile, and momma Manatee with babe.
Can you see them?)
Some are beautiful, but not so graceful.
Some are abundant.
And even though you take hundreds of pictures of them,
you can't stop.
You just take more.

The folliage is both vibrant
But it is alive, none-the-less.
There are reptiles.
Lots of reptiles.
Lots of scary reptiles.
And some pretty beautiful ones, as well.
