Met During A Walk, Alligators

I see them all the time, I grab a photograph all the time. Some are dramatic, others not so much. No matter, it’s an Alligator !

This one moves back and forth between an old pond and the river. He has a little trail and tries to sneak by. It probably worked a few years ago.

The standard shot, big guy sprawled out warming up.

Maybe a 3 year old. This one is still small enough to hide on trail / path sides and not be noticed. His head is up and feet planted firmly, ready to jump in the water if there’s a danger.

And last, the big one lurking. When they get close to the bank, with the algae and branches it’s easy to walk right by. No matter how close.

There should be about 3 more months of activity before they find places to hide from colder weather. They don’t hibernate but do sleep (who knows where) for long periods.
