An Everglades’ drier mini-habitat

A small hardwood hammock stands out in this scene on the Seminole Reservation’s Bille’s Swamp Safari lands. These areas are a bit higher elevation than the surrounding marshes or sloughes. Their elevation can be compared to surroundings by looking at the high-water residual marks on these hardwood trees. Copyright 2020 Pamela Breitberg

So many elements in this image. The overall feel is tropical with the lush greens on the floor and the greys overhead. Copyright 2020 Pamela Breitberg
