When out on a dike, and I see some flow to the water, moving quietly to a trunk can bring some great photo ops.
Any flow in a marsh means somewhere a trunk (water gate) is open letting water move between different areas. Fish move with the open streams too. Fish eaters follow fish.
This particular trunk is on a bend in a dike road. With luck nothing sees you when you (try) sneaking in. This was filled with Alligators, and yes one with his head up looking at me.
Not sneaky enough I guess.
When I got closer another one hidden on the bank slipped in the water and swam away from me. He may be 2 or 3 times the size of me but they still don’t like people.
I’m OK with that.
