“Good judgement is the result of experience and experience the result of bad judgement.” – Mark Twain
Slightly different quote theme to go with my title. This is a regional reference, With one of our state university mascots being the gator (in fact the inventors of Gatorade), Georgia is a natural rival. So the title will surely make some cringe.
Back to nature, with a brief encounter I did notice the behavior of the Gerorgia alligators is altogether different than ours at the wetlands. Going to need to investigate.

I think he looks happy.
Sure does – Must have a full belly. ;<)
Great photos, thanks for sharing.
I just wonder how far is your security disntance when taking pictures of gators?How do you know you don’t another one close by? (sorry for my ignorance)
For these pictures I use a 300mm lens on a nikon DX camera making it a 450mm equivalent. About the closest I will get is 20 feet. While human-gator encounters are very rare they are wild animals and unpredictable. Also, if you are disturbing them they usually hiss or growl – a single to leave. Finally, while you often do not know if another is closer, I always keep my eyes open!!
thanks for the good and detailed description
