We anchored behind Drigger Island...Saw a big gator on our way in..
Jim spotted this big one swimming.
I like these turtles...
An Osprey having lunch
This is a Great Blue Heron....it stands about 5' tall
Back through the canal
Here is another big one....got to be at least 12'-13'
The Elusive Limpkin....Diane's favorite bird.
How about this guy....look at the size of the mouth.
Jim got a charge out of the way this big one was sunning.
This one is not as big as the others...but still could do damage.
another good sized gator
Now here is one that would make you want to jump right in the water and go swimming...LOL
Same gator...different view...just look at those teeth. We see so many people on pontoon boats just jump in the water ....I don't think we would....not after seeing so many big ones.
We got to our anchorage around noon...these two were checking each other out....decided not to sit around all afternoon so headed to the ramp and pulled out.....a great 2 days on the water and lots of big gators. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
