Morning In The Swamp
I know what you all have been thinking…you know them, you love them, you can’t live without them…so where are the alligators?!
Well this turned out to be a warm sunny morning so I figured I would head out to the swamp to see if anybody might be out sunbathing. And yes indeed there was!
Several gators were out enjoying a pleasant nap in the sun, while various coots and moorhens went about their morning, floating around picking at swamp weeds, squawking and fussing at each other as is their typical behavior. One particularly curious coot even followed an alligator as it glided slowly along in the swamp. Possibly it was a young bird and had never seen an alligator before. The alligator, however, didn’t pay any attention to the coot and continued on his way to pick out a nice spot in the sun!
