“OK, Everybody Clear Out!”
Earlier this weekend an alligator seems distressed to show up at his favorite morning nap spot to find it already occupied by a large group of egrets.
Since the birds were not inclined to vacate the premises, the gator had no choice but to lumber over and claim his spot anyway despite the noisy crowd.
Oh-oh, there goes the neighbourhood!
That’s for sure! The big guy has to ruin everyone’s morning.
I love how the egrets seem to have cared less!
It is hysterical isn’t it?!? They really don’t care.
The alligator looks like he is yelling at the Egrets to clear out, and then he took over…..
So funny how the birds barely even move over, the gator almost has to shove them.
Wow, it looks like those egrets could not have cared. Beautiful shot of the gator walking up.
I was even surprised how those egrets acted like it was just another regular day, nothing to see here.
Great shots. I don’t know how those birds remain so calm!
It really is funny how the egrets pay almost no attention to the gator. You would think he would command more respect.
I’m also amazed that the birds don’t seem to be at all intimidated by Mr A.
They really seem to not care in the least. No respect for the big guy. 🙂
Too funny – it really does look like Mr. A is yelling at them!!
He was yelling, and the birds were ignoring. Too funny!
Yikes! They didn’t seem to care though! 🙂
I was even quite surprise they payed close to zero attention to the big boy.
Well, that would have gotten my attention!!
Oh yeah, me too. But the birds… no they don’t care. Too funny.
Love the egrets attitude 🙂
Normally it’s the alligator with the attitude, but this time it’s the birds. They are quite funny.
Wildlife and nature constantly amazes me 🙂
Cute title and all those beautiful egrets.
Nice crowd of egrets have their morning disrupted by the new arrival. 🙂
Ha ha! You capture the greatest shots, Phil, and you have a knack for putting commentary to each scene.
Thanks very much, but they make it easy for me sometimes when they act in a surprising manner. They can be comical.
Those Egrets have to be just about the most blasé birds on the planet! 😎 Obviously they know Mr A is all bluster and no substance. Great captures and story, Phil. 🙂
You would thing that big ole Mr. A would command more respect from the egrets but they do not seem at all impressed. Maybe he needs to start showing them who’s boss out there. 🙂
Great capture – I like how the light is hitting the gator and birds. Those egrets are sort of like cats when they fall off the bed, they are being all nonchalant but I think inside they are a bit angry.
Oh exactly! Just like cats. Totally upset but acting all cool like this is just what they expect should have happened. Too funny.
