This alligator was probably six feet long. I photographed him at a place called shark alley which was just outside of the Everglades. This site is 7 miles long. Good place to photograph alligators and birds. Although I didn't travel the 7 miles, only about a mile and saw several gators, but I am sure there were alot more down the trail further. There were no barriers protecting you from these animals. So you really had to use your common sense and be alert. Although this gator was too busy soaking up the sun.
Have a nice day!
