These a very young, almost new born, baby Alligators. They were photographed in a small creek running along side a marsh.
We had split up and gone in different directions after hitting the first dike.
Ellen found them (above) down in the depression while waiting to meet up with me.
Female Alligators guard their young for at least a year. So the first question was ‘where’s momma’.
I’m sure she was watching us…from somewhere.
