Alligator Crossing

A fellow photographer motioned to me that there was something down over the bank. That motioning wasn’t at all specific, nor alarmed. I was hoping for a Barred Owl, which we had heard earlier.

I backed up, and more and more Gator came through the underbrush.

With my 100-400MM lens at 100MM I could not get the entire beast in my frame.

As expected the Alligator went straight across the road and dropped into the pond.

I found out later was that this is a mama Alligator and she had been seen moving young hatchlings into the pond.
