Last April, I stepped outside my back patio and found this guy resting nearby. I was going to try to get him back in the water so someone didn't call and have him killed, but when I got a few feet of him, I realised he was not the one and gave me a look of BACK OFF! Which I did. We have had several alligators sleep near our patio, and if you DO NOT feed them and respect their space they will ignore you. I say I would rather live amongst these beasts than mountain lions, grizzles, etc

I forgot how to use Caedes and didn't use the Hires photo, sorry.

Alex, what a scary thing find on or near your patio. I guess I would have to have my PF Flyers on so that I could run faster and jump higher if he gave chase to me.

What a 'handsome' critter, Alex. (😁)
If had had such a critter near my patio, I had been paralyzed and be frightened to death.
The largest 'wild' critter living in my garden is a hedgehog, but it knows me meanwhile very well , probably because it's offered a daily portion fresh milk from me.
I don't know whether this gator would appreciate such a 'gesture'.

If you think you can't accept something, try to change it. But if this doesn't work, don't be frustrated, but give it later another try. The one who perseveres wins! Please CLICK HERE to see my journal! Feel free to save my images or to add them to your favorites.

I certainly wouldn't be happy seeing that creature just laying around in my yard. Bet I wouldn't go out at night!!! Your photo is good though.

The title says it all, very appropriate. Your narrative is well said and surely gives one an appreciation of intense moments. Timing of photo is excellent.

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
