Watery Wednesday

These photos were taken at Drayton Hall in South Carolina on September 22nd, 2008, when we were on vacation. Look at all the green "stuff" on the top of the water. As always click on the photos for more detail.

Make sure to click on the top photo, as I think there is a gator in the water? I never noticed that before!!!!

What a lovely catch - the blue heron - on a dull day. ;-)

Leora said...

I see, I see! The alligator! Looks like it was an exciting vacation.

Darla said...

Good job, great photo of the bird. You can see all the detail when you enlarge it.

Isn't it great catching one of those herons? That does look like that might be an alligator. :-) Thanks for participating in Watery Wednesday. :-)

It IS a gator in the water! I love that - when you discover things you never knew were there! I had to do a double take, too - the algae on the water almost looked like land. Nice!

I followed the link to Drayton Hall and find it beautiful. It's amazing that it's almost 300 years old.

I love your pictures.

Gaynor said...

Hi...I did think Drayton Hall in the UK...but not with the gator hehe

Thank you for the post..actually I only got one mildly negative comment and I really really enjoyed writing my last post...the glass of wine or two helped as well ;-)
I refuse to be dictated on what i can write about but after a week of silly headlines here (Russell Brand..USA and cloned mice)...I had just had enough. Was very theraputic lol

Hi Gil,
That green stuff looks just totally gross. EEEWWW! But other than that it is a fab pic.
Love & Prayers,
Ronda

Gorgeous picture. That color on the Heron is spectacular. If there is a gator in the photo that bird better think to taking flight!

Carletta said...

Great capture of the heron! I can't imagine him sitting there so peaceful is that is indeed an alligator!

Jan said...

I had to go back and read because I didn't think there were 'gators in Cananda! But it's S.C. Looks like some very slow moving water.

Becky said...

Great shot!
That sure does look like a gator.
If you had known...would you have stood so close? tee hee

Lakeland Jo said...

I clicked and yes-I think there is a gator

Gill - That British Woman said...

I took the photo from the truck thank goodness, as I honestly never saw that gator!!!

That is a gator! The blue heron looks like it's not bothered by it. Great shot!

Denise said...

Wonderful photos Gill. I think I would have stayed in my car too. My nephew lived in South Carolina for a couple of years and there was an alligator that regularly came on his property. I didn't realize gators were that far north.

Andrea said...

I see the gator!! How cool!

Connie said...

I love the bird and it is an alligator in the water. I saw one in Florida in a little pond in the green water they are hard to see but if you throw something in the water they swim over to see what you threw in. I was ready to run though, they run fast on land.

The Right Blue said...

If it is indeed a gator, the heron certainly doesn't seem very concerned. Hope the heron's day ended well..

Marla said...

Good Photo's! I think I may have spotted the gator!

Aisha said...

Oh wow, those are really cool shots. I have never seen a Blue Heron before.

Anak Dokan said...

Did the gator ate the bird? I wish not..
