Some days there are more than others.
These photographs were taken from a dike that separates two old rice fields. Two hundred years ago plantations grew rice all over this region. Rice is gone but the Alligators remain.
Most locals were doing the typical float but there were a few on the dike sides drying in the grasses. This is the type of place you will walk by many more than you see.
In places where the water is always stagnant it’s much easier to spot them.
Other places they slip in and out of the tall reeds in the high spots. There is always a few places in the fields that are dry most of the time. They pile on top of each other in there.
On a quiet day there are always Alligators to photograph. This was one of them.
