Florida Gator, by Steve Hirsch

On a beautiful morning this winter while visiting south Florida I went to the Wakodahatchee Wetlands in Delray, the wildlife present is truly amazing. Birds and Gators coexisting in a natural habitat with a manmade boardwalk throughout. This gator was about 5 feet long and almost posing for me as it seemed to know it was being photographed.
