What a vast and wild place… Love to visit here… the Aransas NWR is located on the gulf and holds down a large peninsula of land.. there is a 16 mile drive through the heart of the area. I love the open and wild feel.

Baby Alligators

June 14, 2016  |  WildLife  |  Comments Off on Baby Alligators

We Crossed a bridge in Aransas National wildlife refuge and saw a sign for ” aggressive alligators”, we all kinda chuckled as typically these beasts are lying around. As we got to the far side of the bridge we noticed several small baby alligators.. and MOM!…coming over towards us..and looking like she was going to take a bite out of us. Needless to say we retreated and left them in Piece other than a few shots with the long lens from a very safe distance!
