Most of the water was let out of this pond earlier this summer leaving a narrow depression of water and a nice edge for young Alligators to enjoy the morning sun.
A few more were milling around in the water.
And a few more were in the reeds on a little raised island. I didn’t see the mother but know she wasn’t far off.
Based on the location and territorial habits of Alligators these are likely some of the youngsters I photographed last fall, seen here stacked up around their mother.
