Baby Gator on Lily Pad
Went back to Brazos Bend State Park this morning and found that the momma gator and several of the babies had moved across the trail into 40 acre lake. Since there was no log for the gators to lay on, some of them chose to spread out on the lily pads, which made for some interesting photo op’s. I didn’t sit on the bank as momma gator was very angry after one of her babies got snatched by a Great Blue Heron. More on that later.
