All About Alligators

There is something very thrilling about watching these living fossils who have lived on this planet for 200 million years. They seem so contented bathing in the sun, but one cannot forget that they are capable of short bursts of speed. Usually shy of humans, these gators seemed unconcerned by the constant snapping of cameras as they lounge about... contented in their swampy habitats.


  1. ~may i ask how close were you and was there anything blocking you from them...fascinating creatures but yikes!!! warm wishes and brightest blessings

  2. I was about 10-30 feet away from them as I stood on a boardwalk with only a guard rail between us. The close up was by telephoto lens! They seemed very docile in the chilly weather.
