Michael Hussey posted the viral Psychedelic Swamp to the Facebook Group Florida Landscapes recently, and it’s going viral because of the amazing natural colors and light found in the North Florida swamp.

Michael gave the science behind the photo with his original post, “This happens every year as leaves begin to decompose in the water. The decomposing leaves release tannic acid and when the sunlight hits it you see this gorgeous rainbow effect over the water.”
