Blue Cypress Conservation Area, near Fellsmere, Florida

Nikon D90, Nikon 18-300mm lens at 18mm, f/22, 1/8sec, ISO 200
This past Sunday, I went a few miles south of Fellsmere, Florida to the Blue Cypress Conservation Area.
The day was as pretty I've ever witnessed in my 52 years, just gorgeous with a high of 65F (18.3C).
The Blue Cypress is basically swamp.
Lots and lots of birds, but they are hard to photograph because there are airboats back and forth through all the waterways all day long that cause the birds to fly from place to place a lot.
This was a stretch of swamp along a walking path where I could get away from the boat ramps and boats coming and going.
I approximated the Orton effect in this photo.
