There were two large alligators sunning themselves along the bank not far from where we were standing.
There were a lot of buzzards scavenging in the grass so clearly something had recently been eaten. We were pretty sure we could put enough room between us and the gators, but decided to let this jogger run by first to see if they'd react.
I neglected to say how great this latest bunch of photos are. I absolute love the one of the alligator bisecting the space between land and sky. And the closeup of the three birds in the dead tree is beyond fabulous. You have this magic ability to make the human wielding the camera disappear so that, when looking at your pictures, it feels as though the viewer is right there, invisibly peering as the creatures go about their natural business.
