We walked a distance in a Louisiana swamp, a part of the Jean Lafitte National Park site. He was a pirate who helped turn back the British at the battle of New Orleans. The park encompasses several separate places, this being one of the reserves in the delta south of the city. These blooms were stunning in the contrast to the surroundings. I loved the lazy arc and the Japanese feel to the composition.
