Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve in Fort Meyers, Florida is a great day trip visit to a Bald Cypress swamp. There is a nice visitor center and boardwalk for observation. I find the swamp landscapes just fascinating. Here are some photos I took there last November.
Bald Cypress trees (Taxodium distichum).
Cypress knees...actually roots!
Don't you just love the "greens?"
A bit of swamp haze in this one!
Resurrection Ferns (Polypodium polypodiodes).
Alligator Flags (Thalia geniculata).
I always like black and white shots from swamps!
Curious Gray Squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis)
Common Cooter (Pseudemys floridana)
Swamp Fern (Blenchum serrulatum)
