Who Goes There?
We're back at Myakka State Park for today's post. This waterway is the Myakka River, which meanders for 58 miles through this part of the Sunshine State. It's a well known habitat for alligators....which leads me to this photo. See the gator? Usually, I don't see them in this part of the park. I spotted it instantly, but then lost it. Even though I was standing safely atop a boardwalk a good distance away, losing track of what had appeared to be a substantial alligator gave me the heebie-jeebies. So, I was a smidge relieved when I located him again. (Look for the brown lump in the lower third of the left side of the pic.) Tomorrow, I'll show you what he was up to a few minutes later.
