Not A Happy Morning
This morning we went over to the swamp because it was very windy here all day Sunday and we wanted to see if the floating island where a lot of the alligators live in and around had moved. Well…not only was the island blown across the swamp, it seemed to have broken into two or three segments and those were somewhat scattered in a near corner at one end of the swamp. We wondered how the alligators would be affected by suddenly having their home and territory completely changed. We soon found out. There were several gators cruising around in circles in what was now water, but used to be the site of where they would often spend their day napping and likely slept at night. Several of the larger ones were out and they did not look too pleased. At one point this big guy came cruising in to try to find a new spot where he could possibly nap in the sun. He did not look happy at all.
It hard to tell size when they are in the water, so that’s why I included this third shot where he came climbing out to find a place in the weeds to lay down. Even though he turned away from me and you can mostly only see the back of his head, I think you can get an idea of how huge this guy is. It’s almost hard to tell what you are looking at. It looks like anything form a prehistoric T Rex head, to a large chuck of granite. This boy was big!
