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.

  1. Yikes! It makes me think of the recent story of the guy rescuing his puppy from the jaws of an alligator. Good shots of Mother Nature in action.

    • 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™‚
