I sure has been chilly out here in the Everglades, but still sunny and beautiful in south west Florida! These folks wore a couple of layers and had a great time on the airboat ride through the Everglades. Gator D reported on a recent tour, that a large 11′ alligator came up alongside the airboat and one of our passengers either got so excited or incredibly nervous (or both!) that he dropped his camera in the water right by the gator’s mouth! Capt Gary was quick and without delay grabbed the camera right from the water without losing even a finger! Now I have seen Capt Gary get bit by an alligator before and he has some great stories to tell. Anyway, The cold air has all the birds out feeding and alligators basking trying to absorb as much of the sun’s heat as possible. As you can see in the photo, Buster is so cold and lathargic he is practically sleeping in her hands! Never a dull moment in the Everglades.
