Week 16 #42 The Wild Side


It didn’t take me too long to decide what I would photograph for this theme.  Every pond or lake in Florida seems to have its resident alligator or two etc.  This large fella hangs out in the pond behind our home.  You don’t see much of him during the summer months but, once the weather starts to cool off a daily sighting is fairly common.  He enjoys sunning on “The Wild Side” of the pond that backs up to the woods.  My grandkids helped me name him one day…met Alliboba.

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.

  5. Wow! Great example of him but glad you were a distance away. I like the ‘S’ shape he creates.
