Bladderwort and Buttresses – Florida Everglades Swamp Scene

Purchase Image Download:

Deep within the Florida Everglades, the swamp’s abundant flora creates never-ending intrigue for any nature enthusiast.

The buttresses on their trunks have always been my favorite trait of Bald Cypress trees. But they are so common in the Everglades that it is easy for their wonder to fade. When I passed this scene, it was the yellow bloom of the bladderwort that caught my eye, not the cypress trunk. But neither are what made me consider this scene beautiful enough to photograph. It was both, together, that struck me. The way the blooms appeared in the shade of the tree, almost cradled by the arms of the buttress. It’s such a small scene, inconsequential, yet intimate and powerful all the same.
