Old Guy Getting Sun

As I started to finish this photograph in Lightroom I realized I recognized him. Good grief !

The old large males have scars and I could just see the lower jaw, a large white scar. On his bottom jaw, where the teeth protrude.

If you were to look back, at various articles on Alligators you would find this one.

Now, if you had told me this 10 years ago…

What Do They See ? Alligator

After a while you have to wonder, do they really see me. Like many this one is looking directly into the lens, or me.

This one was soaking up some warm sun while he could. The nights this time of year get cold, even around freezing, so sun patches get crowded.

Turtle Is Going Nowhere, Alligator

At first glance I knew something was wrong, just couldn’t figure out what. Finally I looked through the long lens, more curious than anything.

The Turtle was stuck!

Stuck might be the wrong description, he was being leaned on by the Alligator. Look at the Alligators front foot, and the Turtle being held down.

Above, the front of the Turtle was in the air, his legs not touching the wood.

The Alligator had hold of the Turtle, and was not letting go.

The Turtle was too big for the Gator to consider eating, but I guess he made for a good handle to get comfortable on the old ramp.
