“Heh Heh, Nobody Can See Me Here”
Earlier this week I spotted our good buddy Mr. A lurking behind some weeds after crawling up onto the edge of the marsh pond. He was ducked down low and trying his sneaky best to look inconspicuous. It almost worked too until he decided to take a little walk out into the open which immediately blew his cover.
He may not totally realize it, but he is kind of hard to miss once he chooses to take one of his pleasant early evening strolls around the area.
I just love that smile!
He does have a happy little smile. 🙂
Darn I missed it again!. I think I am going to pitch a tent. LOL Nice one Phil as always.
Thanks, glad you liked seeing our gator pal.
He’s a big one. And, with such a nice smile as well.
I think that smile means he wants you to come over and pet his head. 🙂
He would be more scary if he wasn’t smiling. 🙂
Eeeik! Well…a lovely ik that is! How can you not love that face? How busy is this road, Phil? I gather they feel the vibration in order to know when to cross safely? Your stories always make us chuckle!
He is such a good boy and very well mannered too. At some point he makes the decision and just walks right out into any traffic that may come by. I try to make sure he is safe.
He looks like a happy guy in this photo. I got the biggest laugh out of his “no one can see me” initial pose…… riiiiiiight! 🙂 Beautiful animal.
He thinks he is being so clever and stealthy but may not realize he is a little too big to properly hide. 🙂
He is a real looker!
Great shots of this critter!
Thanks, glad you liked seeing the big boy!
It scares me off 😀
Oh he is just a cute little teddy bear. 🙂
He’s a sly one that Mr. A.
He does have a natural tendency to be a sneak.
Good thing those teeth aren’t longer or they would start getting rubbed on the pavement.
Excellent point! I didn’t realize in the first shot how close they are to the walkway there.
😀 He is quite handsome 😀 Spiffing shots!
I’ll be sure to pass along your compliments! It’s likely I will see him later tonight and he will be happy to know he has a fan. 🙂
Well I let him know and I *think* he smiled at the news. Hard to tell sometimes. 🙂
Great photos, Phil. I hope you used a telescopic lens.
I did use a long lens but I was pretty close to the big oaf. Ah, I mean big guy. 🙂
Glad you enjoyed the photos!
Hahaha…..fat chance of him not being noticed, especially if you and your camera just happen to be lurking. 😀
Although… one time last summer I just missed stepping on Mr. A’s nose as he was peaking out like that. I don’t think that would have gone well for anybody. Thanks for checking these out Sylvia!
Nobody does alligators like you do, Phil!!
Well I’m thrilled you enjoy seeing the alligator pics! I have more from this past weekend to post up soon!
