So when you get to swampy areas…
you LOOK for alligators!
Let’s walk out onto the overlook to see if we can spot one.
It was a super bright day but the sun and water cooperated and I really got some amazing details.
These were some of the best photos I’ve ever taken of this prehistoric looking creature.
If you don’t want to SEE the details, jump to the end of the post for a bird photo!
And I’m zooming…believe me, I wasn’t close to this guy!
We made several stops at boat ramps and overlooks on the Withlacoochee River and this is the only alligator we saw.
But he really posed for photos!
This Anhinga was perched on a nesting platform.
I was too far away to get a crisp photo but he sure had beautiful markings.
Okay..I tricked you! Just one more I promise!
I’m joining Saturday’s critters HERE
and I’d Rather B Birdin’.
