My boss is back at work, not full days yet, but he's feeling much better and getting back into the swing of things. It feels good to have his company again.
For the past week he's been telling me about short trips he and his wife have been taking into a nearby swamp. He's offered several times to take me there on a lunchtime photo tour, and today was the day.
Oh!My!God! The beauty! And the wildness!
This particular patch of swampland is less than a 15-minute drive from the office, but it's on back roads no one driving by would ever notice. It's the kind of place that's familiar to hunters in this area, but the rest of us usually see places like this only in the slick pages of coffee-table books.
I'll stick with scenery today, and save the wildlife photos for later in the week.
