Nice Day For Fishing
Earlier this afternoon I spotted this alligator fishing in the salt marsh. Alligators don’t live in salt water but they will visit on occasion if they get the idea that all the nice tasty fish must be there.
In the third photo you can see the big guy under the water with his mouth open and there are several fish swimming right above him.
Just as I was leaving, he came over to say hello which I thought was rather nice of him. 🙂
Did you give him a friendly pat on the nose? 😉
I would give him a nice little scritch between the ears kitty pet style if I could find his ears. 🙂
Molto gentile da parte sua venire anche a salutare 🙂
Belle foto. Ciao, Pat
Lui è un bel ragazzo! Grazie Pat
Nice day for fishing…..but not for swimming ( unless you are the alligator).
I personally decided to stay out of the water and leave both the fishing and the swimming to our big friend here. 🙂
He looks so happy in the first photo. Amazing on those little fish, love that detail. And he looks fabulous in that last photo. 🙂
He is not only a real looker, but has a great personality. 🙂
Thanks a million Pat, glad you liked them.
These are probably as close as I would want to get to an alligator! Brilliant detail, Phil!
Well he was close, but he just ignored me the entire time which is how I like it. :-). Thanks Maggie!
Fantastic set. It’s always nice to meet friendly ones.
He’s a good boy although somebody must not like him. He has a good size gash on the right side of his back. Must have had a disagreement with somebody.
Awesome shots, Phil. What a BIG mouth he has! He certainly looks as if he’s making a beeline for you and your camera. 😯
He came over to say hi I think. 🙂 Glad you liked seeing our friend Sylvia.
How friendly! I can’t believe he took the time out to say hello. Fabulous shots – I like how the light reflecting off of his scaly skin makes it appear purple in the first picture.
Well he is that kind of a guy! Never wants to leave without saying hi to me. Or…maybe he is just waiting for the day when I stumble like a clumsy oaf and tumble down into the water to join him.
A real mean beastie Phil, not sure he was wanting to say hi! 🙂
Well… I’m not sure either. He may be waiting for me to join him there in the marsh for some fun in the water. Yikes!
