More than just gators at Gatorland.


“Gimmi a kiss.”


“To the left a little.”


“That hits the spot.”


Gatorland bunny has the run of the place. But he better watch out and not go into any of the alligator exhibits.


Pretty in pink.




Sexy emu


Bees were buzzing.


The swamp walk was full of ferns.


New growth.


Getting crispy.

There are lots of other things at Gatorland besides alligators and wild baby birds. They have parrots out in the open hanging out together and playing. Rabbits and wild ducks can go where ever they want. The swamp walk is a boardwalk that goes through a swamp filled with ferns. Red bellied woodpeckers were flying high up in the trees. I get there early to take pictures of the baby birds in the mangroves along the alligator lake but before I leave I take a walk around the rest of the park to see what else I can find.

  3. I love your selection of subjects, it is so broad ranging; exceptionally well done…It took me a bit to figure out the EMU.

    Lovely shots of the Macaw story. That bunny looks remarkably like a hare. Gators are not my cup of tea but flamingos I can take any day.

    Hi Dina What a wonderful variety of critters adn plants you have posted today. Your photography is second to none.

  9. A pleasant reminder of Gaterland. I haven’t been there in well over 20 years and quite frankly had forgotten how much there was to it. Your pictures are lovely as are all of your critters … I wish I could get my mate to scritch my neck like that 🙂

    those macaw colours are so brilliant and totally amazing, though I’ve always enjoyed seeing the pinks of the flamingos too (too far from home though)
