This is my friend Hank.


Yes, I really was that close. He came right up to my boat.
Most alligators shy away from boats, but not this guy. I think he wanted my sandwich.

Are you sure he didn't want YOU? ; )

I'm trying to think positive.

Actually, I believe that this one has been getting fed by fisherman. Big no no.

They begin to associate a boat with a food source. Problem is the boat I was in isn't very big.

On top of that, I jumped on a wharf so I could cast my line in the marsh and my boat got away a little bit and ole Hank here got between me and the boat.

Thankfully, a stray breeze pushed the boat back to me.
