They Disappointed Me, Alligator

I really thought I was going to get a classic shot. One I have seen before but always makes me laugh.

The first encounter.

The other day there were plenty of people touring the ‘flower spots’. Charleston is one of the biggest tourist cities, and this is big.

I had been waiting for these visitors to walk to the waters edge for closer photographs of the hills and blooms. And when they did… the jumping in the air and muffled ‘screams’.

First, not a single person walked to the water.

Second, none of them noticed 3 medium size Alligators watching them (click image to view full size).

Too bad, it’s great theater.
