Caw Caw

Southern Wetlands, Caw Caw County Park, Ravenel, SC  © Doug Hickok


From the cool misty coasts of Maine to the hot humid climes of a Southern swampland, this weeks posts offer a variety of natural environments for you to enjoy.


Today's image shows swampy wetlands from a former rice plantation, which was converted in recent times to a wildlife refuge and nature education center. This park is called Caw Caw, just like the sound of wild crows.


Hope you have a wonderful weekend, 
and if you gotta... crow!

  1. You're really making me want to explore South Carolina, Doug! And to think I could have done it all those 25 years I lived in Atlanta. (sigh) It was fun seeing the Peter Pan video. :)

  8. Wow, is this really South Carolina?
    So it's not just sea islands, huh? :o)

    It looks like a bayou in Louisiana to me.
    Well, I have never to the States.
    Saw similar pictures like this on National Geographic. :^)

    I'm off to France for a short summer break.
    I see you next week.
    Au revoir, mon anime (pardon my broken French!) Ha :o)

  15. Beautiful! I love swamp lands like this. Maybe it's because I live in the desert, but this is so lush and the colors are so rich and gorgeous.

  16. I can almost feel the humidity--nice job filling the frame with the dense foliage and thereby taking us directly into the shot.
