Sedge from Sanibel
I’ve just returned from a brief trip to Sanibel Island, Florida, where I saw this sedge:
I think this is a beaksedge. Rhynchospora colorata is similar, but perhaps this isn’t that species. I found it in a wetland trail not far from the Sanibel River, across the road from Ding Darling refuge. I saw many beautiful wading birds at Ding Darling, too, but since I saw them from the tram I wasn’t close enough to photograph them. I also got to hear Clyde Butcher lecture at Ding Darling, and saw his huge prints of the cypress swamps and the everglades.
