I frequently take note of great photos I see posted on line, and then try to imitate them. The latest one was a close up photo of an alligator swimming with a dragonfly perched on his eye. But the colors blended and at first I didn’t notice the dragonfly, but there was a reflection in the water and in the reflection that dragonfly looked like it was in a mirror. Such a surprising photo, and I assumed it would be a rarity, but the dragonflies and alligators seemed to go together well at ‘The B’ yesterday. They were buzzing around the alligators as they swam, and landing with impunity. Spunky little devils. I found that surprising.
Since I recently lamented over only seeing the black dragonflies at my lake at home I was happy to see a variety of colors at The B. Well, green and blue at least.
Babies are so cute aren’t they. But gators? Not so much.We saw eggs, and then debated whether they were alligator eggs or turtle eggs. We suspect that raccoons may have lunched on these eggs so it really doesn’t matter.
Can you see the young alligator leaving a trail in the algae?
Gators, just a little prehistoric looking, and fun to see, from a distance…
