Swamp the Second

Another picture from the Everglades, and in this one, you can just make out a bird sitting in the tree (what type, I'm not exactly sure).

I'm a senior in high school and a teacher (won't name names) takes me and one other student (which is why I'm not naming names, what this teacher did was probably illegal without billions of forms, waivers and other legal mumbo-jumbo) out to Loxahatchee, on the edge of the Florida Everglades. It was there that I saw my first real alligator (and it was the only time I've ever seen an alligator, even though I live in Florida).

eeek!  eeek!
