Water Water Everywhere #56 – heron vs. gator

Tricolored Heron getting a little close to a large gator.

Tricolored Heron pushing his luck with the big ole' gator.  In Florida, where there's water, there is always a chance an alligator is somewhere to be found.

    • Yes, it was a heroic thing he did, but the gator he wrestled was only about a 3-5 foot gator. It wasn’t that big but if he hadn’t done it, his puppy was gone. The gator in this photo was large! Very large! 12-14 feet! It wouldn’t have eaten that man. We were on the opposite bank so I wasn’t worried and he was sunning himself. Not likely to move. πŸ™‚
