I Don’t Think Mom Was In A Good Mood This Morning…
It was a beautiful, warm sunny morning today and I went over to the swamp to see if any alligators might be out enjoying the Spring weather. Upon initial arrival I didn’t see any gators at all, but when I went over to the area where mom had been keeping watch over her little ones this past fall, I found her tucked back in among the reeds.
At first she was just napping but after a short time she woke up and kind of glared at me. Perhaps she remembered me from a previous encounter where she was not extremely thrilled with me hanging around and pointing a camera at her babies.
But in any case I did not get the impression she was in a particularly happy mood despite the gorgeous weather. It could be that she is just hungry after not eating all winter, I know that would ruin my mood for sure!
Um, wouldn’t want to mess with that that. At all. 🙂
Yeah I agree, especially when she is in a mood. 🙂
Allora meglio stare attenti, potrebbe venirgli una voglia improvvisa di farsi uno spuntino 🙂
Non voglio che il ragazzo grande per uno spuntino su di me. 😯 🙂
Meglio di no 😆
That isn’t a good look! Glad to see you out more, Phil!
She did have a bit of a look on her face didn’t she?!?
It’s good to be out especially with the weather so pleasant. These past few days are about the best I’ve been feeling in a month.
She does look hungry. Not much to eat in the mud though.
Once she gets hungry enough she will start roaming around and is likely to be a handful in the coming weeks I suspect.
I’m guessing if you’re an alligator and you’re starving, pretty much everything looks like food.
That’s exactly right and I have seen them pick up and eat some odd items. Anything to fill the old belly I guess. 🙂
I don’t know how you do it. I would need to change my shorts often. How far away are you when snapping these gems. Great shot!!
Oh she’s just a pussy cat. 😀 I was maybe 12 feet away but the alligators are still fairly slow (I hope) right now.
Glad you liked this shot!
Not a friendly face, Phil. If looks could kill, you’d be dead meat. 😯
Nah… she’s just flirting with me. 😀
Not sure I’d be sticking around while she gets to thinking I’m food…..
If she starts moving tooooo fast in my direction, I’m perfectly fine with leaving the area. 😯 😀
You must have looked tasty as one can tell by the expression of the gator.
I think she likes me. Wait, I mean I hope she likes me. Not as a meal though. 😯 😀
