The Inevitable Gator


And what is the thing that people go to Myakka to photograph? Why, alligators, of course. I didn't get really close to one until right at the end of my day, but it was a pretty good one. Probably 10 feet long or so, this fellow surfaced right under the bridge I was standing on, and hung around for maybe five minutes of pictures. I felt pretty safe being more than six feet over his head, but I wouldn't have wanted to be only six feet from him if I were in the water.
