Cindy's Gator Shots

My pal Cindy doesn't need me anymore.



(sniff)





Once upon a time she would bring her flash drive down to my computer and slurp all the good gator shots up to load on her computer for screen saver slide show thingies.



When she went on trips, we reviewed her photos ... they got better and better.



Then she got a new camera ... a Sony.



Now she's going out there and getting her own fabulous gator shots.



How about this one? Not bad huh!

She actually has this guy on video walking towards her.



Pewter gator anyone?

That one is huge ... look at that belly ... and that huge tail.



Ferdinand?



Above... she even captured a gator stopping to smell the flowers.





These pics are nothing to yawn at.



I think she did really well ... next thing you know, there will be a new blog out there ... Pure Cindy, or something like that.

Sigh ... they grow up so fast don'cha know?

Oh, ... and she had a birthday just the other day, so she's really on a roll.

What? How old? ...Oh, ... thirty something ... ( Was that a great show or what? )

The only negative thing about Cindy getting better at her critter photography is that NOW I'll have to get even closer to the gators to out do her.


Oh goody.

Since I have had a hand in educating your little monsters, I guess it is only fitting that you helped this little monster! :)

Nice shots! I'm so used to seeing them either lying around or swimming that I forget how tall they can stand up on their legs when they want to walk (or run). Will she post the video?

Very nice gator shots.

Great shots. Great one of him walking. Was he coming aggressively? What is the rule? Run zig zag?

Cathy S,
I loved that book as a kid and my kids loved it too.

Cindy,
You earned your wings there, kiddo.

Sayre,
We wanted too, but we had a few issues. Not giving up tho!

Robin,
She did okay, didn't she?

Patti,
The rule is run like hell.

You have some competition and it's not looking good for you! Just kidding. You've got a while to go till she gets the dangerous shots.

Just remember to wear your flamingo flippers or your gazelle galoshes. You'll get really close to them then.

Be careful out there.

Awesome pics! I think the one that is up walking is my favorite because you hardly ever see them doing that!

Jean,
I don't know, she's progressing fast! It's that Cindy perkiness I guess.

Freste,
I was thinking the same thing, now where did I put those?

Miz S,
Always.

Dave,
LOL! That's what I told Cindy. We gotta get the video clip up, it's a neat one.
