Here is a friendly fellow at a sewage treatment pond about 150 miles from my home. We have seen him eat a Blue-winged Teal in one big snap.He doesn't look like an alligator I would mess with! Cool shot.
Various from the Everglades.Great photos and I really like that overhead shot - is that from one of the observation towers? I need to get down to the Glades one of these days - I'm just having a hard time convincing the wife (not the outdoor type) that it will be a fun trip.
Yes, it's from the observation tower stop on the Shark Valley tram. I love the Everglades. If you do go, drive all the way to the Flamingo Visitor Center area. Eco Pond just past there is loaded with feeding birds at 7 a.m. (Egrets, herons, Roseate Spoonbills, etc.)
