Alligators were everywhere. They were very loud since it was the beginning of mating season.  Now one of the main trails is closed for the summer since the alligators spend a lot of time on the trails raising their young.

I was taking a picture of something else when I caught the above out of the corner of my eye. I quickly turned around to snap but I had the wrong settings to get a good clear picture of him. He was gone in a few seconds. I finally see one walking across the trail in front of me and did not get a good picture. I was bummed but at least I wasn’t missing a limb.

  1. That’s a pretty scary gator pic on top so no need to hang around and fuss with settings, hikes.. You got some amazing shots.

  2. Because it’s an alligator rather than a croc, I am guessing this is in the US somewhere. Fabulous photos. And the missing head didn’t take away from the photo, it’s still a really cool shot.
