Here are two of the four alligators I saw parked at the edge of the marsh pond this morning. They are out awaiting the warming trend in temperatures that we’re expecting to start today.
So far they have been a bit disappointed, it was cool and somewhat blustery out there, but things appear to be improving as the day moves along.
It’s not nice to fool the alligators with the weather forecast. If you promise them a warm sunny day, that’s what they expect!
Wow! Major closeup, great shot!
It was too bad I woke that one guy up. Don’t want to disturb their rest. 🙂
A guy can get pretty fed up with all this waiting for some warmer weather!
That’s for sure! These guys need to warm up so they can start eating heavy. Must be Spring.
You’re pictures are so fascinating. I’m glad it’s you, not me!
Glad you like seeing the always fun gators!
Great to see these sweet guys again. 🙂
I always love when these guys start getting going each year. Springtime!
Such great images, so close. I know seeing them would be wonderful, but for me, at lot further away. Do they give you a wink sometimes?
They give me a couple different looks. I’m not sure about some but I do think when they start blowing bubbles at me when in the water it’s not because it’s someone’s birthday. 😮
The real signs of spring are when gators start showing up in my Reader. Funny how they always lead back to this blog.
I’m not sure how those gators always seem to end up here, plus they do tend to attract some onlookers.
I’m just waiting now for them to get up and start doing stuff. Currently they are mostly just laying there looking at me as if I’m supposed to entertain them.
He’s sure got the “half mast” eyes there. I bet they can’t wait until it heats up a bit.
They are definitely waiting for warmer temps. And they keep getting teased. One or two days of sun then cool and cloudy again. That’s not nice.
Thanks so much.
What lens did you use, Phil….he looks too close for comfort?!
Cool critters. From a distance, they could just be logs.
