This time of year is more than large beautiful birds. Breeding and nesting (yes, they lay eggs) Alligators are out and about.
In fact when working on other photographs from the last few days I notice Alligators all around the back ground.
These photographs were taken while I was standing on the banks of a large marsh pond. I had been shooting Storks in the distance and noticed movement below.
They had been stirring up the mud this day working the shallow water. It’s always interesting to have these guys moving around.
