A wonderful day in the Everglades Nat. Park, sunny, hot and humid and not forgetting the mosquitoes.  Usually they are not fearsome during the winter months, but due to global warming, the temperature was quite unusual in February.  I survived many bites, but was happy with the result.  With Photoshop and using layer i came up with the idea of the threesome.  Hooray for Photoshop.
