If you remember from yesterday's post, we visited the Savannah Wildlife Refuge and finally arrived at our favorite pond. This is quite small, but not water I'd like to fall into. (You can click on any of the photos to see them larger!)First, we saw an anhinga drying his wings,
then a turtle on the side of the road,
and several sunning themselves on logs on the pond.
And what have we here? A curious alligator, swimming straight toward us when he saw us standing by the side of the pond. We could have been worried, but he wasn't that big.
When he got close, he stopped and stayed there for his photo opp. Do you see the plants hanging out of his mouth? He was probably vegetarian...
Now, these are always exciting to spot - alligator babies. This one was really small - smaller than the turtles we saw.
But this one was already a little bit bigger, although it still had the stripes on the tail.
Finally it was time to leave and we made our way out of the refuge, but not without stopping to take a picture of this magnificent creature!I think they will forever fascinate me!
I'm hoping to get some studio time today. But in any case, I wish you a great start to this week!
