Alligator With Smile & Feather

I found this Alligator at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm. It looked like it was happy & smiling. Then I noticed the feather above it’s eye! Maybe it looked happy because it just finished a feathery meal. Or maybe the feather dropped down from the birds in the trees above the gator. The Alligators there actually protect the many nests in the rookery that are above the alligators. They keep many of the predators that would be attacking the nests from getting to the nests. It is amazing how many nests there are at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm.

  1. I love the feather, Reed, and of course the awesome alligator too. If I squint my eyes, I can see the alligator wearing a jaunty hat with that feather stuck into its brim. 🙂

    • Nice Mike! Did not think of that! Hope all is well & stay safe! Here they do not even want us walking outside. So just finding images to post from old outings.
