Mud Gator, Part 2

Mud Gator, Part 2

I had taken a few shots of an Alligator that was deep in the tidal mud, see part 1 here.

The marsh on my right was my main interest, however I looked over my shoulder and there was the muddy guy.

The spot I had looked down from for the previous photographs was an open trail.

It turns out he waited for me to turn and walk away. When I did he made his move to climb the dike and get into the deeper marsh water.

The car path on top of the dike is about the width of 1 1/2 cars giving you a perspective on his size. Basically, medium size.

I called to Ellen who was walking up ahead a little, she took a few shots of him too.

Not sure if I bothered him and he wanted to get away from ‘people’ or he needed to rinse off the mud.

If I had not turned I never would have seen him walk by.

    1. Thanks. Actually nothing like you would think. The biggest ones still make a point of avoiding people. Obviously you don’t ‘poke’ one but we photograph them all the time. The day these were taken I was with many other ones. Those photos out the next day or so. We hundreds of articles here on the gators, please dig around.
