Reflections in Bull Creek

Bald Cypress and Other Trees Reflected in Bull Creek 4661

Click for better detail.

On December 3, 2013, I wandered along Bull Creek and was intrigued by the trees reflected in it. The orange that you see at the left came from a bald cypress, Taxodium distichum, whose needle-like leaves were changing color. Most of the trunks visible here belonged to sycamores, Platanus occidentalis, which, like the bald cypresses, are happy when they’re near a creek or pond.
