While camping here last week I continued to seek out landscape compositions that might make for a large wall mural representing what Old Florida might have looked like about 500 years ago. This image is of some flat lands between two Hardwood hammocks just north of the Big Flats campground where I camped. I would probably be standing in nearly 3 feet of water by the water marks on the trees, which of course I would not because the park was closed. That would have made hiking to the places that I hiked on this trip a bit on the rough side, not that I haven't done a little wading for images in my past but no longer.
From the amount of wild hog droppings (I'm being kind here) on the other side of this field, I would say that there is still and will continue to be a population of hogs that will never be eliminated. Just consider for every hog trapped and removed a female hog will deliver about 10-13 piglets 4 times a year. o more than just trapping needs to be implemented and I saw signs of that the next morning where I came up to a hog that was shot in the head apparently the evening before about 40 yards off the edge of the main road. So I am guess that the trapper has been given the OK to do some shooting as well.
So the original file of this is 5 vertical frames @ 54 inches long @ 300 ppi. If you click on the down arrow icon on the right under the image and choose "Original Size" you will see the full uploaded size of 40 X 15 inches. If you click on the down arrow icon on the right and select "Original Size" you can see the full 40 inch long image.
You can go here for the mural images I made last year at this park:

BTW, if you like a bit of humor of the things that have happened to me over the years on some of my photo adventures, try reading some of the stories in my Blog. I've just added the last two adventures that happened many years ago. Just waiting for the next humorous adventure to arrive.
I'm sure there must have been a couple of events that happened out of the ordinarily while some other photo adventures, but trying to remember back 15 years now is a real task. But when I do I will write them up and post to my Blog.
