Byron's Story Behind the Picture

I recently spent 4 days in the swamps of Mississippi photographing wood ducks. I would enter the blind at 4am and be out of the blind with time to explore the swamp by 9am.

One morning as I walked through the swamp in Yazoo National Wildlife Refuge, I was struck by the pattern of arching trees and their reflections in the dark still water.

Here in all the chaos of a swamp was order in nature. I composed the image and began taking pictures. During one particularly long exposure, it occured to me that I had returned to make pictures in a place that was only a little over an hour from where I spent my childhood catching snakes, lizards, turtles, and frogs.
