We were on the maiden voyage for my new Nikon camera at the state park. The wife and I were on the "catwalk" for only a few moments, with the wife in the lead, when we unexpectdly came across this momma gator and baby. Well, this catwalk is only about 2 foot wide, and it is only a few feet off the ground, and I guess the gator was pretty close to it, but, while kneeling down to take this pic, my wife disappeared on me, terrified, which I just don,t think is right. I could'a been atacked and no one to help me LOL. So I ended up with a pretty cool pic and a gut busting laugh to boot.
