He Had Comments
I stopped over to the marsh briefly this afternoon and quickly noticed our pal here climbing up out of the water after picking out his spot for a nice afternoon snooze.
But surprisingly, he had a few choice remarks to make prior to settling in for the day. First he puffed out his throat and bellowed loudly. Then he glared over at me and had a few other things to say. I’m sure he was just being friendly and wanted to give a warm greeting. 🙂
Hilarious! What did he actually say? 😛
I think he was complaining about the gusty wind conditions. They don’t like windy days which tend to cut down on the warm sun which is best for napping. 🙂
I’ve never heard them bellow, he might have been saying Hello.
I took a very shaky video of the bellowing, I may try to put it on youtube if it’s not too horrid.
don’t think I’d want to get any closer to find out!
He was making his point just fine from that location. Don’t think he planning on coming up any closer. 🙂
Holy Gator, I cannot believe I am looking down the throat of one! Great shots, Phil!
They have a pretty large throat hole through which big chunks of (most anything) can slide right down. Yikes!
Yikes is right!
Hey, Phill! That awful sight seemed to have been a warning. “Do not come any closer, I am dangerous.”
I actually think he may have been a it upset at my presence. Normally he would be happy to see me (at least I hope so) but not on this day.
Awesome. I’m sure he was saying come closer my good friend – I can’t hear you.
I was planning to stay put exactly where I was and hoping he was planning the same. Turned out that yes indeed he was just picking out a nice nap spot. But… he did have a few opening remarks. Point was well taken. 🙂
Good grief….. I can see his tonsils! I’m sure he wasn’t being personal, Phil. 🙂
Well, I had to figure he was (mostly) OK with me being there, at least I hope so. But he was not on his best behavior.
He better adjust that attitude before tourist season really picks up. 🙂
Yikes! Hope you took that with a VERY LONG lens….
Yikes indeed! I did have a telephoto on but he was still right in front of me, maybe 7-8 feet away.
You are far braver than I!
Wow great picture
Thanks very much, I’m always happy to see these guys, just hope they are happy to see me. 🙂
Funny thought but in the Dinosaur era Mr A would have been huge.
