Alligators were on the move early on this morning despite the morning heat. This water is a canal around an old rice field that sits at the edge of the South Santee River.
I intended to walk the dike but it wasn’t mowed so that was a non-starter with the tall grass harboring a gazillion mosquitoes and likely a few more Alligators. I plan to go back later in the fall or winter for another look.

Omg — just those eyes peering out of the water 👀 gives me the creeps. Quite the prehistoric critters.
They sure are! I’ve gotten used to them but do like to see them first!
Lol 😆 I hear ya!
That was a good sighting, I’ve been holding off from visiting the wildlife sites, the mosquitos are really bad.
Thanks, Alice! No amount of spray will help you when they are like that. I’ve seen some folks go out with mosquito hats with nets, I don’t need to be out there if it is that bad!
