Love the way the gator is just gliding behind those dried flowers, he is determined to be the star of your picture 🙂 Reply ↓

By golly you’re right! There IS a gator in there! 😯 😉
Look, he even winked as passed by 😉
I thought he was giving me a look! 😀
Hahaha! Did I really imagine that you would post a pic of only dried flowers? 😆
Ha ha ha you see people think I can’t shoot flowers but I can. Well, sorta. 😀
Simply awesome. 🙂
Thanks, glad you liked the flower pic! 🙂
great shot, wonderful focus! Love this aligator behind the dried flowers. 😉
Wish you a succesfull week
Thank you moni, so glad you liked the ‘flower’ pic! Enjoy your week!
Even in the Sunshine State. Really lovely colours and textures and the ‘gator cameo, made me smile. He really does look like he snuck into your shot with his self-satisfied smile! 😀
He does have sort of an odd look on his face doesn’t he? Almost like he is sick of this big jerk always coming around and pointing something at him. Ha! 😀
Glad you enjoyed the photo!
Nicely done. I can trump your brown wildflowers with the snow around here.
Thanks much. But you can have your snow, I’ll stick to my dried plants. 😛
Actually, believe it or not I do have a photo of an alligator in snow after one of the rare snowfalls we got here in coastal SC. I’ll post that at some point.
There’s two things that don’t seem to go together.
Aww..little gator has been decorating his swamp. How lovely!
Oh yes! It’s the new Swamp Fall Collection! He looks great in those colors doesn’t he? 😀
Wow, did you take this photo!? How cool 😀
Hi Mari! Yes I took this photo, I have taken all the photos in this entire blog. 😀
I’m so happy you visited here and I appreciate your kind comments!
Thanks I appreciate it.
You had me wondering if maybe you were running a fever or something! I am happy to see you are your old self. The flowers are a tad out of focus, BTW. Great capture on the Gator!
Well I’m pretty much my old self I guess. 😉 Good point about the OOF flowers, I need to work on my focusing and DOF more. Plus it looks like the stupid camera back focused on something. 😦
It would seem that there’s just so many of them alley-gators around that you just quit seeing them after awhile. 😉
We are getting to the end of our alligator season. Soon there will be no more gator posts from me, other then some file stuff until Spring. 😦 Will you miss them?! 😀
Funny, but all your photos have almost made them there reptiles almost endearing…. where do they go for off-season?
(I’ve really been struggling to get WP stuff to load – wondering if it’s just me, or WP?)
Well I’m glad if I have made these critters seem more fun then scary. Well…”fun” may not be the best word but you know what I mean. Our guys will mostly hibernate in the swamp area. They usually dig out a nice mud wallow for themselves and kind of relax away the winter. Their metabolism drops very low at this point and they will not eat.
Come March/April they will be back out and full into eating and mating season by May.
Although…we can concievably see an isolated indivdual out even in the winter. I have a photo of one in the snow. Not many people have seen such a thing.
I’ve noticed a lot of dried flowers here as well like you said must be that time of year. :+)
Yup, it’s simply that time of year. 😉
well you wont find these guys in Lossie harbour
I believe you are correct about that Scott. 😀
But what’s that spooky-looking thing behind those dried flowers?
I just noticed that myself. Guess that’s what happens when I’m not paying attention and the camera back focuses on me. 😀
Thanks for looking!
So happy that you are taking time to notice the flowers even if they are dried. Keep working on that DOF issue. I am sure you will catch on!
I’m trying my best to get better with both focus and DOF. Maybe someday… 🙂
I am loving this take….
Thanks much for looking!
Oh My God!!!! I didn’t expect to find this handsome guy 🙂
He is very good looking. 😀
To every season…turn, turn, turn.
Ha ha absolutely! 😀
