I met this swamp warrior this weekend at a crawfish boil. He brought a whole army of friends just like him. He was very happy to pose for a macro photo.

Recently, I took time to travel deep southern Louisiana.  A great stop was Palmetto Island State Park in Abbeville, Louisiana. http://www.crt.state.la.us/louisiana-state-parks/parks/palmetto-island-state-park/

This park is a beautiful place with an ecology like none other. The cabin accommodations are really nice and the staff are exceptional.

Here are some photos from the trip. Enjoy!

This is why I never see too much above my head, or sometimes even in front of me when hiking in the South. You always have to be wary of poisonous snakes below.

I slither and seek

My copper pattern warns you

Please don’t tread on me.

Special thanks to the officer in Breaux Bridge, LA that let me macro photo his shoulder patch.

Any officer with a crawfish on his sleeve wins my approval.

This photo was taken inside the Old Louisiana Capitol building in Baton Rouge, LA, as the sun’s rays pierced through the stained glass onto the floor.

I took this photo while walking in downtown Baton Rouge, LA.

I took this photo in Ville Platte, Louisiana along Main Street. It is a beautiful quiet little Cajun town. The people were fed up with loud car stereos and sagging pants. They passed a laws, and you now get a $250 bond, and trip straight to jail for violating either law. Every city should have this sign.
