Day 4

The swamp ecosystem has a diverse range of animal life and some of the biggest bugs I have ever seen. Many of these bugs I have never seen before. The picture below shows an ant the size of my finger nail.

And while it was slow going through thickets of blackberry and water up past your boots, we managed to get a lot of work done in short amount of time.
