We spotted these two on Blue Creek, just off the St Johns River, FL. I found it intriguing since the small gator is resting his head on a large turtle. Someday it will be on the gator’s menu…
The turtle didn’t like us getting so close and decided to leave.
A few days later we spotted this one on the river bank. It was fairly large. I would guess at least 9 or 10 ft.
But the biggest treat was to spot this huge gator at one of our favorite anchorages.
It has a very broad back, a very large head and a lot of “gator tail”. One of the specialties on the menus around here. So I’m not going to mention where we spotted it.
Just as I switched from photos to video it headed into the water and I missed the action.
Is it grinning at me?
