Or maybe that should be Alligator Alba? Anyways here’s some alligators from my recent adventures in the Florida Swamplands.
*Note no alligators were harmed in the taking of these pictures.
**Also note, no humans were harmed in the taking of these pictures.
Just swimming along, minding my own business when I’m disturbed by cameras and people going “ALLIGATOR!” Blooming humans!!
Say “Cheese” for the camera.
You know what they say – Never trust a smile on a crocodile. But Alligators are OK. Aren’t they? You can trust their smiles?!?
So calm, so inviting…. MUST….NOT…PADDLE….
That is one trusting (or dumb) bird!
He has his beady eye on me…!!!!
Florida swamp – Myakka River State Park actually
Pretending to be a log…. we can see you!!
Not an alligator. Not even when you grow up will you be an alligator. Arry, yer a lizard!
Mr. Alba is SO trusting… “Go a little bit nearer dear, it’s for the photograph!”… hehee
Doesn’t it look great? We also canoed up a river with alligators (Wekiwa Cold Springs State Park) but we didn’t see any alligators when we were on the river. Which is a good job as I had my 10 year old nephew in my canoe and I don’t think there is much meat on him. I’d make a much better lunch for an alligator!
Swamps can be beautiful too
You know, it hadn’t even crossed my mind to molest an alligator….
