Journal Entry 11 October 2017 – Gators be There!
Despite some huge fluffy clouds overhead, I drove to my favorite wetlands for some nice walking and photography.
Wakodahatchee is nearly empty these days as most of the birds have completed their nesting cycles. I noticed that some of the smaller songbirds are now showing up in the hammocks, although photographing them with my camera is almost impossible given the fact the birds hop around from branch to branch.
There was a large alligator paused in mid-swim with its nose to a clump of marsh plants. These armored beasts are very big and powerful. Swimming in the dark waters of Florida’s marshes and ponds is not advisable due to their presence.
I saw a couple of Great Blue Herons, although it could have been the same one flying around trying to get me to take a photo of it, lol!
