Dragon In His Lair
Well actually it’s more like the cute alligator laying around on his bed of nice soft tamped down weeds.
I took a walk over to the swamp this afternoon but things looked fairly quiet. The usual active assortment of coots, moorhens, and grebes were hard at work but otherwise not much going on.
I took this overall view of one section of the swamp with my phone because I didn’t have a wide lens with me. Then, down just a bit further, something caught my eye and I stopped to peer through the reeds. Although he thought he was well hidden, I was able to spot our alligator friend relaxing in the mid day sun. He lifted his head up and took a look at me but was not tremendously impressed so he went back to napping.
Pleasant enough day for everyone it seemed, with not a care in the world.
