Nice cluster of bladderwort flowers! Bladderworts are a type of carnivorous plant with small bladders clustered along the plant that trap and digest microscopic crustaceans such as Daphnia and Cyclops. So the plant was doing a lot more 'chomping' than the lazy gator this day.

Did you see the story about the Independence police shooting and killing the gator? The concrete one I mean...

Some unsuspecting flower thief might think this guard gator was a rock. Won't they be surprised.

That you have, FC, that you have. Thank you for the journey so far.

Dave,
Awesome is easy here on the frontier. :)


Sayre,
Just another Florida roadside attraction.
The original one.


Robin,
Gators always wow me. Like dolphins, I never get bored with them.


Prem,
Yup! A great little plant. And a fearsome predator of all things planktonic!


3Collie,
Oh yes. That was pretty humbling.


Lisa,
Yes, but only once.

That 10x zoom comes in handy, doesn't it?

Floridacracker said...

Vicki,
Totally.

Dani,
That gator is lovely.


Miz S,
16X ... size matters, duh.

Miz S said...

16x? That does it. I need a new camera.
