Everglades Clearing, 2012, Jo-Ann Sanborn
acrylic on board, 5"x7"
There's very little water on the Everglades prairies during this time of year. Alligators who aren't near deeper water have excavated a hole to fill with water and help them survive the dry season. Fish, turtles, and other prairie denizens will use the alligator holes for water, too. Once the rains come, the wildlife will disperse until the dry season comes again.
