Spring Break 2023: Thalia geniculata

Thalia geniculata, the Alligator flag;
Collier county, Florida (12 March 2023).
Spring Break 2023

I’m quite the fan of Alligator flag. This wetland-bound species is quite abundant throughout much of the Florida peninsula. We have a bit of it in my home territory of Volusia county, but nothing beats the masses upon masses of Alligator flag in South Florida, especially in Collier county. It’s quite abundant along the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary boardwalk trail, too, and serves as a nice hiding place for wading birds.
