On my last morning at Wakodahatchee Wetlands in Delray Beach, FL I saw the big alligator once again. This time I managed to get a few good photos. But after looking at the pictures, I realized there is no way to convey the size of the alligator without seeing next to something you would recognize to give it scale. Since it was in the middle of the water, I did not have that opportunity. So here are a couple of shots and you’ll just have to trust me, it was huge!
In this one you can see the boardwalk where I am standing reflected in the eye!
