Airboats and Alligators

Went to Lake Trafford in Immokalee for an airboat ride.  Lots of birds and alligators.  Most are the same birds I see in my own Naples community, but a great many more.

Snowy egret.  The water was clear and a rich blue.

This image illustrates the number of birds in the area.

Seeing a bull in the water with a cattle egret on its back was a surprise.

Lots of alligators but most didn't offer me a clear or interesting shot.

A tricolored heron looked startled.

Wonderful photos, Jack. Your Snowy Egret shot is terrific, a winner. Also enjoyed seeing the bull with Cattle Egret on its back. Interesting to see Gators in the wide so long as they are not too close.

That gator is a formidable sight.

The shot of the Egret is fabulous, Jack.
