Shot: A very large tree to the left and beyond the Bald Cypress (Taxodium distichum) in the image. Photographer's note: "This is an amazing swamp forest now protected by the State of Georgia. The bald cypress trees are so impressive but equally impressive are the Ogeechee lime trees (Nyssa ogeche), like the giant one to the left of me. I climbed as high as I could in an adjacent giant bald cypress so my camera position was better. I used my remote clicker to avoid a sloppy 10 second sprint. Notice how large some of the cypress knees are."
