We went to Gatorland again a couple of weeks ago, and I just love it there.  We went with great friends, the weather was beautiful, and we all had a great time.

It's actually a bird sanctuary, so I always take a lot of photos of pretty birds.

I always take this exact same picture when I go to Gatorland.  I just love the way the white bird's reflection looks in the muddy water.

The white birds -- what kind of bird is that, anyway? -- ride around on the back of the gators like they are huge, scaly surfboards.

I don't know what this is, but it's rusty and interesting.

Our friend's two year old daughter was having a "sad" day, and despite the beautiful scenery and the petting zoo and the train ride, she was positively melancholy.  Attempts to cheer her up were such a burden to her!  :)


  1. Great shots Ellen! Looks like a very special place. The white birds are egrets.

  2. Egrets! Thanks, Deborah. It really is such a lovely place.


Tell me what you think!
