During our recent time in Florida we visited the Florida Everglades National Park. This park is full of life! In the photo above, an alligator is approaching a wary  heron in a waterway near Anhinga Trail. The alligator got quite close, swimming right alongside the grassy little island, but the heron stayed on full alert, stepping back as necessary. Eventually the alligator nonchalantly continued on its smooth, sinuous way.

We also saw this female anhinga, a magnificent, cormorant-like bird. These fish-eaters likes warm shallow waters. There are two American subspecies of anhingas, this one being Anhinga a. leucogaster, native to the southern United States, Cuba, Granada, and Mexico. 

We saw many of these brilliant Red Cardinal Airplants (Tillandsia fasciculata), also called Common Pine Bromeliad. They are one of Florida’s 16 native bromeliads. Being epiphytes, they usually grow on the trunks or branches of trees but are not parasites. Instead, they take in nutrients and water from the air and from whatever collects within their leaves.

We were struck by the lush beauty of the Florida Everglades, an enormous, slow-moving river covering most of the southern part of the state. These waters used to have a far greater flow volume, but were blocked in the mid-20th century by rapid urban development. Great efforts are underway to restore the previous flow, but it will take a very long time.

Jeff Reich Sculpture Accessioned into the 

San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts

Jeff Reich’s sculpture, Ocotillo Field, 2015, was recently accessioned into the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts. It was donated by a couple who acquired this piece for their own collection while traveling in Arizona as members of the James Renwick Alliance. The James Renwick Alliance is a support group for the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Renwick Gallery. Having artwork placed in public collections is tremendously gratifying for artists. The work will be seen by many and cared for professionally.
