Leecy and I both got up early to venture out to Sheldon Reservoir. I actually did the fishing, and Leecy took the pictures.
As I’m casting out my line, Leecy yells “There’s a gator!”
As I peer through my camera lens, sure enough, there was a huge Alligator just crawling out on the shore on the opposite side of the reservoir.
I’m not expert at judging things like this, but I’d say this guy was at least 7-8 feet long.
Strangely enough, the birds didn’t seem the least bit afraid of him.
