Looks like a scene from any of a hundred spots within a few miles of my home in Florida.
Beautiful in its vibrancy but … it is an environment that doesn’t necessarily easily accommodate humanity. Mosquitoes and biting flies are going to want a nibble on you, alligators and poisonous snakes will contest your dominance, corrosive and toxic plants will attack chemically if so much as touched, and highly aggressive microorganisms and fungi will try to take advantage of your inability to stay dry or get away and take up housekeeping in and on you.
It’s a jungle out there, a very pretty jungle in spots, but still a jungle.
@ Vince Goodrum: Now, please give us the working hypothesis which explains the mechanisms of this alleged creation process of the ‘creator’, and how all these marvelous creations were somehow ‘spoken into’ existence.
You call scientists ‘evotards’, which apparently implies that *you* have the answer to this elusive question. Citing Bible verses, poems and prayers isn’t enough, and moreover, doesn’t prove you correct any more than it would prove a Hindu perspective correct.
I don’t shoulder the burden of proof for a creation hypothesis. Because bible!
There are no Hindus in the bible, therefore their perspective is not valid.
Ahhh … Our good buddy, and purveyor of bronze age ignorance and pseudoscience relabeled as understanding and mixed with insults, is back to provide us with a little light comedy.
Great photo! Now I want to go to S Carolina.
