Ribbon Snake

Let me start with, I’m not a fan. However, there he was laying in the sun, on a log over the water. No way he would bother me, plus I was pretty sure he’s a harmless variety.

He moved, but not very far to have peek closer to the water.

I wandered along the path and when I came back he had doubled back, and seemed content to stay right there.

Alligator Swimming

Most of the time when I see an Alligator in the water it is just the head, but sometimes when one is swimming to get somewhere the length of its body sticks out of the water.

This one was swimming like he had somewhere to go and even though there wasn’t great light on him there was a lovely reflection of a cloudy sky in the pond.

He did duck down under the duck weed and popped back up in a fully shaded spot with even more vegetation on his head.
