The one above is a youngster, about two feet long and he's semi-vertical on a steep bank.
This larger 6 footer was perched up above the first pic gator and was getting the best sun. There were actually three gators, two young vertical baskers and the box seat basker above them.
Monday's big critter post has nothing to do with gators by the way ... it is reptilian though.
The moon was out early with plenty of daylight left, so I stopped for this cypressy moonshot on the way back to pavement.
This one is for all you moon lovers out there.
