The standard South Carolina warning sign reads as follows ;
Alligators May Live Here
I even have a photo of it here, it is always bright yellow to be sure it can be seen.
You may also notice it is possible to walk across the water without getting your feet wet.
These large ‘stepping stones’ were discovering fish swimming through an open dike. In minutes the number tripled.
In a short amount of time I was able to shoot 6 feet (1.8 m) away from these large ones by standing on the wooden trunk.
As long as I stayed aware of the dirt bank on either side I had the perfect photography blind. None would climb the bank, the fish were down below.
Now I have 600 photographs to wade through.
