Photo of the Week
Alligator River Refuge Alligator
I'd been over to the refuge a half a dozen times this spring and summer before I saw this four and a half foot (or so) gator. He was basking in the sun fully exposed on a log when I saw him, and he stayed put for about 10-15 minutes while I photographed. But when he turned and slowly swam off, the reflections in the water created a beautiful wash of color and movement around him, and so this shot is my favorite.
I hope you enjoy it,
