Animal Wednesday - Alligator on a golf course.


This is a stock photo but this also exactly what I saw last week in Florida on the golf course behind my MIL's house. He was just resting in the sun, and the pictures that I did take were with my lousy cell phone camera so no joy there. I don't even know if the golfers knew he/she was there, there were over a tiny hill playing away. I kept wondering what would happen if they drove (or walked, g-d forbid) over the hill and saw this 8 foot alli waiting for some nice delicious sunburned old man to chew on!
It was a high point for the week, that says alot eh?

HAW all - enjoy your local critters.

PS - lot's of wonderful money donated to Bernie last week and I've matched 10% on top of my donation. Thank you all - she does such wonderful work and I love to support her efforts.

The photo made me laugh. My husband and sons were play a course, in Florida when my middle son's ball landed by the end of the water.
They headed over, in the cart, saw what was next to the ball, decided to turn around and hit another ball. lol :)Bea

You are going to have so much fun. Please give them both a big kiss and hug for me and then get them to do the same to you from me.

Mim did you receive your print?

If not I bought two they wouldn't be what you picked but I can send you one of mine.

Love Renee xoxoxo

I believe they're not as aggressive as crocodiles but I'd rather come accross a kangaroo on the golf course, which of course we often do!

I'd be terrified if I walked upon this guy on the golf course or anywhere, not that I play golf but you know what I mean.
