1  2 American Alligator  
Three tiny hatchling alligators were in sight near the edge of the water, but with mama on guard I thought it best not to approach closer for better photographs.
Alligator Hatchlings
There is one tiny alligator head sticking up above the grass in the lower right corner:

Now we can see four little gators. Hopefully one day I'll run across another batch of hatchlings and get a closer safe vantage point to take pictures from. Meanwhile, let's get back to the grown up gators.

Care for a nice refreshing fresh water swim?
Baby Alligators
This Snowy Egret was strolling along at a good clip. It's a very brave bird. Look behind it!

My previous alligator page has more pictures. You can also see an alligator with a mouth full of pink bird on one of my Roseate Spoonbill pages. There are a few other gator stories scattered throughout my site, and I add things as I come across them when I have a camera handy, so come back to see what else I find.

Lots of Alligator
