"He said she said blah blah blah" They do it too.
I think that they were happy to see me.
Zoom at 18mm with quickness. The one on the right is about 10 ft long.

There are quite a lot of gators in there and they look hungry. Great capture of the gator gossip.

Yes, I'm sure you were quick, indeed. Snap snap! haha! Amazing how fast they can move if they want to. Excellent capture, Waddy! I love gators - they are down to basics.

omg...I guess they were happy to see you...dinner time I suppose!! My gawd they are swimming all around eyeing everything. They are such fierce and primitive creatures, aren't they?

Does a possible hole in the boat ever cross your mind when your out there at night?! Superb capture of these awesome things. I'm glad you shoot them with your camera and not a gun, this is a NICE image!

OMG!! They are ugly.. Remember being in Fla a couple of yrs ago and everyone wanted to go on an airboat ride (didn't want to go b/c of what could be in the swamps yet, didn't want to spoil the event for other people). Too make a long story short arrived @ the place and there where @ least 200 bikers there so my friends decided too crowded.. Whew!! ..

Looks a little close here and i bet a gator can move quickly..

YIKES! Too close and w-a-y too many of them!!

Reminds me of a long-ago trip we took to FL. My son was still a babe in arms and we were at some park or another walking around on berms and periodically finding an observation tower. Water, water everywhere. Saw an occasional bird and lots of bugs but that was about it. Sun starts to go down and suddenly there were gators popping up *everywhere!* One started swimming parallel to me, and my husband thought it was funny. I didn't like the way he was eyeballing the baby and insisted we leave. ::shudder::
