Most people have at least some experience photographing mountains, sunsets, sea shores and lakes. Swamps and marshlands, however, are vastly different.

I have absolutely  zero experience trying to capture places like the Everglades and Big Cypress on film. And trying to photograph their wildlife was almost impossible for me, as the pictures which follow show all too well.
