for yesterday's shot, i was never in harms way. this one, however, is a different story. i've seen my fair share of the discovery channel, and i know these guys are quick. this beast must have been close to 9 feet long.

he probably could've taken me... but there's an old saying: you don't have to outrun the gator, just the people around you. seriously though... i was more afraid that he would get scared and disappear under the water.

thanks for the amazing response to the photos this week. i really enjoyed my trip to myakka and plan to return.
