Just Another Beautiful Day In The Swamp
It started off being yet another unseasonably warm day so I thought there may be some alligators out in the swamp taking advantage of our current Spring like temps. I saw a few gliding along out in the clear water but when I checked in close I spotted this little guy making his way through the duckweed like he was on a mission.
I was a bit surprised to see one of our late babies still out and active at this time of year and I was interested to learn where he was going. Well it turned out he was headed over to his favorite log, (well for him it’s more of a stick) to relax and enjoy a pleasant day in the swamp!
The stripes make me think Tigergator. 🙂 Gorgeous shots.
They are often stripy and very colorful when young like this.
Thanks for checking these out and glad you like the swamp baby!
Hmmmmm! He doesn’t seem handsome today our Mr.Alligator 🙂 But as always you captured him so nicely dear Phil, Thanks and Love, nia
Nia he is only a little baby, not even one foot long. Don’t you think he’s cute?!? 😀
Thanks very much!
L’ultima foto è un vero spettacolo 🙂
Mi piace quando lo chiami “uno dei nostri bambini”
Non sono sicuro che tutti si rendono conto che lui è solo un bambino piccolo. ah ah
Grazie mille Pat!
Beautiful. Even gators like their favourite recliners, err sticks, at an early age.
Oh sure they like to take it easy just like the rest of us. Actually alligators excel at doing nothing, even at an early age they have the technique down.
So cute! I am glad he found his stick 🙂
He is cute and I was glad he found his favorite stick too. 🙂
I really like the way you capture your various subjects. Baby alligator is no exception.
Thank you very much! These little guys are fun to watch and photograph. 🙂
He looks like a very jolly little gator, Phil. So cute that he has a favourite ‘stick’ to lie on. 🙂 Great captures again!
Thank you Sylvia! He is a fun little guy and it’s so good for him to have a favorite stick to lay around on. 🙂
Bigger and bigger! Love the last one!
He does look quite relaxed in that last photo doesn’t he?! 🙂
I like his green algae smile. Looks like the swamp is a happy place.
He does have a very nice smile and is likely quite happy in his swamp home. Not sure if mom is still around though so he could be on his own now.
Cute lil’ babe. I think he looks good in green. 🙂
Oh green is his color for sure! And yes, quite a cute little fellow indeed. 🙂
I have missed your gators while I have been off-line. And isn’t he a gorgeous one? Such a sweetie. Do they bite when they are babies?
Glad you are back and also glad you are happy to see what our alligator friends have been up to.
This little guy sure is cute isn’t he?! And I expect he would take a nip at me if I ever tried to pick him up.
Another great post!!!
Thanks much Erv, glad you liked it!
I love this little fella… just so long as I don’t have any like him in my neck of the woods!! I like that last shot especially… he has a “no-bull” look about him! Great shots, Phil!
Oh you would love to have a few around in your area, they are such fun! 😀 Well…especially when they are little and cute like this guy.
He does look like mini king of the swamp in that last photo doesn’t he?!?
Is just not the cutest little guy?! I love his colors. Really sweet series, and I’m glad he got to enjoy some warmth on his “log”! 🙂
He is super cute for sure and they often have those stripy colors when young. Quite attractive. 🙂
I hope he warmed up nicely because it got cold later and then yesterday too, but today is right back to being warm again.
I love that really knowing look on his face in the last picture, Phil!
Oh yeah, he looks like he has it all figured out doesn’t he?!? 🙂
He is OK now but he better be careful next Spring when the big guys get active again.
Beautiful captures in the swamp.
Thank you Jan. I’m glad you liked these.
We are getting some record cold temps for this time of year thanks to a frigid blast of arctic air, and lots of snow.
Yes they really are cute!
T shirt weather here again today. 🙂
