World in a Marsh

Top of page

An intimate view of the miniature cosmos that seethes in a ferment of beauty and savagery behind the tall reeds and in the quiet waters of the marsh. Here strange insects, small amphibious creatures, and birds that prefer watery haunts, devour, and are devoured, according to nature's stern decree of balance and survival of the fittest.
