Bona Dea Update





I suppose we will leave the best for last. The Famous Alligator, or one of them, has arrived for the first time in 2011. As Paul and I were out a about on the trails, several people saw us with camera equipment and asked if we were going to see the alligator. They said several people had seen it and had taken some photos. In fact for the past 2 days, the local newspaper had photos and comments of the gator from people who had sent in pictures. This may not necessarily be a good thing. It was about 7 to 8 feet long and appeared to be one of the smaller ones. It was said last year as posted on this blog that the authorities had taken out the larger one. So this would be a very lonely creature now days. These are 4 photos of it as seen on 03-23-11.The link highlighted above will take you to other pictures of this one and a bigger one. The earliest photos in the album are of the bigger one.

What part or area of Bona Dea did you take these pictures?

They were all in different places. You usually see them first in the western part of the park and then it migrates around to other areas when it gets warmer.
