26. Fear


This morning I woke up at the crack of dawn to join some friends on a guided tour to Myakka State Park. I am in no way a morning person but I am glad I made the effort. Sometimes spending time in nature is good for the soul. I always find nature especially beautiful when I am framing it up through my lens finder.

I knew that one part of our hike would include an area called “Deep Hole.” I anticipated seeing a lot of alligators but was shocked to see roughly 75 alligators floating in such a small area. Our guide, Dick Pfaff, made sure that we approached the area in the safest way and that we kept a safe distance.

Once in awhile the quiet was interrupted by the splashing water and the sound of crunching when an alligator would push up out of the water with a large catfish in it’s mouth. A nice little reminder to keep your distance from the waters edge!
