This is a 4 footer who was warming up last Jan
when I first discovered the Park & Ibis Rookery behind the Palm Beach Solid Waste Treatment Plant.
It's only accessible till the end of January when the rookery starts getting really active.

Hope to be taking NEW WILD GATOR CLOSE-UPS
this weekend as I head south after Diner tonight.

Hope to be back on line by Friday.

Good luck with the gator snapping.

I don't think we have those guys behind our treatment plants! I'm sure they're very nice and docile! :-)

You be very careful taking those pictures and use a real big zoom lens. They are amazing creatures and this picture just temps our curiosity as to what that series will look like. Beautiful and amazing photo work my friend.
