My university has its own swamp in the middle of campus… :)

I brought my camera to class today, got out early, and decided to have a chat with the animals.

He didn’t have much to say, but he’s a very good listener.

    Congrats for the Feature. Excellent capture.Swamp in the middle of a campus? Wow, you guys are very courageous out there :))

  • Thank you very much! There’s a short brick wall (about one foot tall from the outer grass, but a couple of feet up from the water) surrounding the swamp. And several signs warning to not feed the alligators, and to watch your dogs and children. The university removes the alligators once they reach a certain length, thank goodness :))

    Florida is brighter – our sign says “do not molest the alligators”:)) One day we were fishing in a park, sitting on a rock, and suddently we saw those eyes. It was so close we colud almost touch him. Kind of scarry – our park doesn’t have walls, so we run as quick we could :))

  • That was too close for comfort!
