Who’s Watching Who?

Monday afternoon I was watching this egret fishing along the edge of the marsh pond when an alligator came floating into the scene.

Now…we had the egret watching the gator…the gator watching the egret…and me watching them both…

We all ended up getting along justย fine though, I never jumped in and bothered either one of them!

Alligator Watching Egret

  1. Great picture, but also wondered how you get in so close, do you use a zoom on them? or do you actually get that close???? I would scared to get so close to an alligator, and maybe he is a pet? lol….seems to be pretty mellow around the birds, and never knew Egrets were vicious either, every time I would see one they never seemed very vicious or threatening to me, an alligator yes, but maybe they are all friends!!!! hey you never know.

    • Oh I get close, but naturally I have a telephoto lens. No pets, all alligator I photograph and post are wild animals living in the wild.
      I was only joking about the egret being vicious, they are quite docile birds. Well… at least to me, they can get a bit rowdy toward each other. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • If I would have jumped in there, the egret would have flown over to where I was, then he would have been able to watch the show of the alligator and me probably laughing about it. Smart ass bird.

  2. Erm, good you didn’t intervene. ๐Ÿ™‚ They really are keeping eyes on each other, one probably for a different reason than the other! ๐Ÿ˜‰
