Thanks all. I shot it this morning, about 200 yards down the river from my house. By the time I clicked the shutter I was soaked to the skin. It's danged humid around here at this time of year, but it's always beautiful.

I couldn't ever think of a Florida life...Humid beyond my ability to think rationally! I'm very much a winter guy.

It took me a few moments to figure it out--it is subtle.  There's a lot going on in that image.

@PeterFoiore:
I too am a winter guy.  I revel in temps that are double digit below zero (F).  The snow squeaks beneath my boots! :)

Humidity is just as much a part of life in the south as snow and ice are a part of life up north. I can't stand to be cold and will drive hundreds of miles out of my way to avoid it, whereas, heat I suck up like a lizard on a hot rock.

Nice see, Russ.

Thanks, Chris.

I'm the other way around. Let's face it, if it gets colder you can put on more clothes, but if it gets hotter you can only take off a certain number of clothes before you find yourself in jail.

I'd be like the kid in a Christmas Story, so bundled up, I couldn't walk or move my arms.

Chris, 

There is a whole world of modern clothing for winter...Warm, and far less weight and bulk of the !930's.

Slobodan,

I love that...My problem with Florida weather is that I question the sanity of the men not wearing shorts. That's pretty much year round.

Ever go through the Florida woods in shorts, Peter? There's not enough Deep Woods Off in the world to get me out in shorts. To the grocery store or the mall, maybe.

I'm in the woods all the time with only shorts on and I've found Deep Wood's Off does a wonderful job but I also use a tick repellent. Deer ticks can prove to be fatal.

That's one, where we need to worry! We have all that stuff up here in the northeast corner of Pa. No gators here, at least none that I have seen.

Out of curiosity, which tick repellent? Not that I'm overly worried. Ticks are so pervasive here in Nova Scotia we get a bit blasť about them. A couple of days ago I took a well-fed wood tick off the back of my arm. I went walking on McNab's Island a couple of weeks ago and came home with two deer ticks dug in.  Deer ticks are more worrisome as they can carry Lyme disease. If you get them off within 24 hours there's rarely an issue, but you need to watch for "the signs", including a big bulls-eye rash. If you don't know how long they've been attached, see the doctor and you'll probably get a couple of antibiotic pills just in case. If Lyme symptoms appear, you'll get a whole course of antibiotics (7-14 days of them). It would be rare to die from Lyme disease, but the infection can cause complications with pre-existing medical issues. The disease itself can be nasty with debilitating fatigue, muscle soreness and joint pain, and palsy-like paralysis of facial muscles. Symptoms can last for months.

After a walk in long grass or brush, it's best to get naked with your spouse and check each other over.  ;) Clothes should be put in the drier on high heat for a good 5 minutes before washing. Of course, you can use the drier afterwards, too, or dry on a clothes line.
