The last article in this series, photographed while we walked off the dike.
The Alligator below was on the opposite side of us, and all the other gators. While a decent size he was no match for the big guys. I assume it was safer over there.
Below is a short series where one of the larger gators slipped into the water while we watched. At first he swam in our direction but turned to move back down to the crowded reed islands.

The final photographs here are of the Alligator that slipped into the water moving by our comfortable friend.
I walked back up the dike to get these since I wanted to show some perspective on their size.
I needed 4 articles to cover this day, amazing to deal with such large Alligators, and the number of them.
