The Congaree

I wanted to share some pictures of the Congaree,. So you ask what is the Congaree? Its a National park just out side of Columbia SC. After the workshop at the University I had a chance to go out to the Congaree its an extraordinary place enormous Bald Cypress trees and Loblolly Pines, I love the sound of that name "Loblolly" say it out loud, I's just fun to say! Be sure to click on the pictures to full size or you'll miss the detail and the giant spider in the last one. Enjoy!!

This was an incredible Loblolly Pine, the bark and sheer size of the tree is unbelievable.

This was the most amazing find, The Golden Silk Orb-Weaver Spider He or She let me get so close and never moved so. I got a Great image of it! Amazing!
