Heron And Alligator, What Was He Thinking ?

Under any other circumstances I never would have taken this shot. Bad light and too far. However…

Really ? Why ?

If you look at the reflection you can see the alligator is so close he breaks it up.

Many times I have seen this and the bird is just fine. How many times does this go wrong ? These alligators are not ordering take out.

    1. I know !!!! It’s shocking to me how often this happens with no problem. It’s like they know the alligator is not hungry. Alligators don’t really hunt. They wait, and never move, until the perfect moment and grab their prey. This bird was to close to get away, no matter how slow the alligator moved.
