Odd couples…

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.05-21-20alligatr-dragonfly

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.05-21-20greendragnfly05-21-20bluedragnfly2

Babies are so cute aren’t they.  But gators?  Not so much.05-21-20gatorbabesWe 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. 05-21-20eggs

Can you see the young alligator leaving a trail in the algae?05-21-20gatortrail05-21-20gator

Gators, just a little prehistoric looking, and fun to see, from a distance…
