Big Birds on the water

It's finally getting cooler now. Sometimes it's in the high 60s in the early morning, and it never gets up to 90 degrees during the day. A welcome change! We took the boat out again for a quick trip into Lake Griffin. So lovely!
On the way back through the canal to our dock I tried to take a picture of the lovely great blue heron standing on the bank. I didn't even notice the HUGE alligator in the water. Just his head was visible, but it was big enough to impress me!
We don't see alligators this big in our part of the canal, but the herons visit us. One likes to stand on the dock across from us and watch what's going on. It's hard not to feed him but so far I've resisted. I'm glad he comes fishing here!
