Many moons ago when hubby and I were dating we (along with my daughter) took a trip to Charleston. There is a plantation garden in the area (don't ask the name, it has been ages! Another reason to write on back of photos!!). Here are a few I came across the other day.
It looks so still and serene, doesn't it?
Another bridge along the walk path. Even the swampy water has beauty added to it.
But don't get too close to the water's edge, oh no, don't, because danger lurks there in the waters. Blending in, sunning, just waiting.
Closer to the house you will find an animal that will alert you to danger. Here is one in its full glory. Although it was taken in the shade, I remember waiting a while to capture it.

Curiosity overcame me and I checked for the name of this place. It is called Audubon Swamp Garden at Magnolia Plantation. It sits on 60 acres with cypress and tupelo in the dark still waters. There are boardwalks and bridges everywhere that will take you around so you can see all the different animals and birds that live in and along the swamp. I think that it is time to venture to Charleston later this spring to visit all the different places. And did you know that the area also has a tea plantation? Now I would really like to explore that!
