Not So Stealthy This Time
Alligators can often be quite sneaky. They can lurk underwater and surface just at the right (or wrong…depending on perspective) time.
So earlier this week I noticed this big guy trying to act all casual at the edge of the marsh pond. I almost didn’t see him because he was trying to use the tall grass to conceal himself from view as he maneuvered his nose in position right in front of where I was standing.
But I knew what he was up to. Our gator friend was attempting to trap some fish up against the edge of the water where they would be easy pickings. Once he caught one he got all excited and the stealthiness went right out the window. When a big alligator gets himself all excited and starts splashing around in the water, scooping up weeds along with fish, they are fairly tough to miss.
