This past weekend was amazing! If you're friends with me on Facebook you saw the giant alligator that scared me and my friend to death last Friday. He was a good 15 feet, if not longer. The wind was pushing our kayaks closer and closer. Finally, I anchored myself against a tree that was probably 25 feet away to get pics with my phone. When the gator lifted his head, my heart leapt out of my chest and splashed into the water. Haha, I exaggerate, but I was pretty scared. Then he slithered into the water while we paddled as fast as our arms could manage. My friend Cathy kept looking backwards. I kept yelling at her to keep paddling! Later, while putting her kayak onto the roof of the SUV we were attacked by a swarm of ladybugs! Let me tell you those things sting!
|Sorry for the poor quality, but you at least get the idea of size.|
|Even the ducks were in on the action.|
|They always took their catch to the banks and ate there.|
|This snowy egret was the most successful fishing. After a while he stood there for a long time|
with his mouth open like this. I don't know if he got stuck by a fin, bone, or what.

My legs are wrapped around my tripod for extra stability.
