One of my field sites I visit weekly is at the edge of a cypress dome in Orange County Florida. I noticed this week that the water level indicated that it was about 1 foot lower than last week, so I decided to go into the swamp to see what it looked like. The water had just dropped below the lowest point in the wetland, so there was no standing water. Typically cypress domes only have a few feet of water in them anyway, but it was interesting to see it after it had so recently dropped. Everything was still very damp and green. It was a beautiful sight in the afternoon sunlight!
