My husband and I went to a wetlands park. Many people were on the boardwalk photographing SOMETHING so we went over to check it out. There was a Heron and a small something or other hen (can’t remember the exact name). A man told us to look around the Heron. There were TONS of baby alligators. The little hen was out there too. Then we were told the mama alligator was coming to protect her babies. The alligator came quickly and the heron stepped back. We had lots of commentary going on. I felt like I was watching a rated R movie and it was so suspenseful because I had no idea…would the heron eat a baby alligator? Would the mama alligator eat the heron? It was just too much action for me which is why we moved on to Angelica the bird who was so conveniently sitting right on the rail beyond all of the people and the water action. Here are the photos I took. I drew arrows on the picture to show where the baby alligators were. In the last two pictures you can see the mama alligator coming up on the birds at which point I took that last picture and hopped in my scooter and zipped off. Quite the adventure though right? And that was just the first five minutes!!!!!
