Back to Myakka.
Spent another long morning at Myakka River State Park. This time I took one of the bike/hiking trails that go through some wooded areas. There were a lot of deer, which seemed to have no fear of people at all. I could pass by on my bike just a few feet from them and they would just watch carefully, and then go back to grazing.
Also watched this stand-off. They both stared at each other for a few minutes, until the alligator slowly turned to the side and floated away. Maybe he doesn’t like fowl.
A little further on, this guy was getting some sun (photo taken from a distance with a telephoto lens, I might add).
