    I spotted this pair standing perfectly still in the shadows. Must be one of their survival techniques. All pics taken at Myakka River State Park.

    As much as I wouldn't like to come across one in my cornflakes, the low pov on the second is very good. Do they ever have a go at you?

    Careful there, Bub, most people have been attacked by gators hiding in reeds and cornflakes. :distracted:

    No, they never have a go at me. Maybe because they can see I'm old, tough and chewy ..... so, that's actually a good thing.
    Seriously, alligator attacks are very rare. Most occur when someone is either too close to the waters edge or they are in the water (swimming), presenting themselves as the catch of the day to some big, lucky gator !

    Here in the UK we don’t know how lucky we are not to have so many things that will bite, sting

    Very nice on the Dinosaur. In Florida you can walk right up on them. Can't do that here.
    When the wild ones see you or sense you, down they go. They will jump off the bank or a favorite sunning place like they were shot out of a cannon.
    When they get used to your presence and don't panic and run, that's when it becomes dangerous. You are now considered a food source.

    Thanks, Pete. It was rather far away and not much detail (the bright light didn't help anything) but I thought that other things about it made it likable.
