The prompt: Capture a black and white image that says eerie.

This guy surprised me, lurking in the mangrove swamp, deep inside the Everglades.


Alligators prefer apple snails to human beings ~ there’s not a single documented case of a park visitor being attacked by an alligator in the backcountry of the Everglades. As for poachers, fugitives, crackpots, and other undesirables attracted to this hostile environment – well, that’s another story.

  1. Good choice! Altho perhaps no attacks in the park, several documented cases of attacks elsewhere. Here in SC we’ve had several dogs killed and a few arms taken from unsuspecting golfers and gardeners!


  2. I think most Floridians have learned respect for alligators. And Fried Alligator Tail
    ain’t bad either…when properly cooked! This from a Transplanted Yankee!!!!
