About the last third of our trip home from work winds along little two-lane country roads. My favorite part of the ride is where it runs for about a mile through the swamp above. The road has a very narrow shoulder and there is no place to park for some way, so my husband had to drop me off and drive down the road a bit while I took pictures with my phone and then come back for me.
It's been pretty dry this year, although we've had a lot of rain the last several days. When we have a really rainy year, you can't see all that vegetation, well, you can't see the road either. Last year, it got so dry that you could have walked through it dry shod. I didn't like that at all.
I love this tree. I wish I had had a better camera so you could see this better, but I've enlarged the picture as much as I could without making it too blurry. If you look closely you will see white egrets: one flying on the left, three in the tree and three near the right side of the picture. This morning, the tree was full of vultures.
