    This is one of many new images in my Everglades gallery here.

      Interesting stand-off, vulture vs. alligator.

      Sgt – now that would be interesting if that bird decided to land on Mr. alligator – he would son discover that they are faster than they look!

      Was it dry enough for a number of gators to congregate in small ponds Jon? I’ve seen it over on the west side of the state. Creepy.

      Isn’t that the usual winter pattern? It’s been pretty dry lately.
