Gators on the St Johns River

We had a wonderful day on the river. Seemed like every where we looked there was a nice sized gator sunning itself. This one was sharing the area with a turtle and a White Heron.


The water was so flat the reflections are almost perfect.




This one sat for a short video before heading into the water.

I definitely missed getting some good pictures of the biggest gator we’ve seen out here.


He had a nice spot behind a few big trees with some brush for cover. As we got closer, he raised up and walked a few steps.


Then he dropped down and waited to see what we were going to do. Look at the size of that hind foot and claws.


Before we could get around the tree he went into the water. We have his spot marked on the chart and will be looking for him on the way back up river. He was huge!!
