Longleaf Pine Savannah...


I'm in one of my favorite locations of all time -- The Green Swamp Preserve. This shot was taken in Shoestring Island, one of the several large Longleaf Pine Savannahs in the Preserve. It was burned (on purpose) this past winter in order to remove the woody understory, and the new growth (ferns, wire grass, carnivorous plants and orchids) have come back in profusion. You just can't imagine how beautful this place is until you see it for yourself...
