Haven't been on the boat for a few weeks so I went back through my photos and found a few nice gators. This one was sunning itself with a smaller one.
Here they are swimming out toward the boat.
This gator was sitting with his back to us…we cruised up as close as we could.
As we got closer it turned to watch us….then went into the water.
I find these creatures fascinating and never tire of watching for and photographing them. We cruise much slower than most boats on the river (6 mph) and create very little wake. If they are out there…we spot them. Oh…don’t think for a minute that because you don’t see them….that they aren’t there….Just start shining the shoreline after dark…all those eyes are most likely gators….big and small.
