These photographs are part of a work-in-progress created as an Artist-in-Residence at Big Cypress National Preserve during February 2015.  Despite the beauty of many plants and animals, a dark side can be unleashed when they are moved from their original environment through our actions.  Native plants and animals fall prey after the imported visitor establishes itself and becomes dominant.  The spread of non-native species is a global issue and is a problem with which Florida and the National Park Service has much experience.  This sampling peeks into the artistic process: Should the subjects be presented as studio close-ups or in their outdoor settings?  Should they center on plants or animals as well?
