Gator Hunt

One of my favorite places to go close to home is Blackwell Run. I mentioned Wheeler Wildlife Refuge in the last post. I’ve been out there a couple of times this week because other local photographers have gotten shots of one of the alligators that haunt that inlet off the Tennessee river. It’s been a couple of years since I saw one but the conditions are great right now. The water is down and the temperature is up. After about 4 hours of watching I managed to snag one photo and a video of the one running around an easily accessible section of the swampy area. 

I also grabbed a couple of other shots too while waiting.
