Saturday September 2nd will go down in Gatorpalooza history!! My dear friends Lisa and JC McNeill, Founders of Alligator Alliance, finally returned for a visit to our local favorite habitats to spot our Scaley Scuters and to clean up after TS Idalia! Luckily for us, surprisingly after the storm, most environments were pristine. We did our self- appointed job but mostly we simply communed with each other and nature. I'm starting my photographic journey with my old reliable Olive who sported her dragonfly adornment quite stylishly! Oh Happy Day for me as nothing makes me smile more than Dragons and Dragonflies ... Although we didn't see Popeye / Beau, we did finally see Jolene and a second interloper quite a distance off - shore. All told we saw 11 Gators Ya'll!!
Next up I present my little Froggy Gator who greeted us @ a second habitat. I have to admit this baby is probably my favorite gator presently. I don't know what Frog is wearing here but it was adorable. This boldly curious critter hung out with us for quite some time affording me a nice photo shoot!
We finally spotted the elusive Mojo but in my excitement attempting to get a better shot I was greeted with a resounding splash!!
