Watch Your Step! Week 21 – Theme #46 Fear.

IMG_0019

One of the first things I did when we built our house 7 years ago in Lakewood Ranch was to post a picture of my new neighbors, the Sandhill Cranes. Since then, I photographed them doing all sorts of things. And gators? Tons of photos, especially from visits to Gatorland and the Alligator Farm in St. Augustine. However, I have never photographed gators and Sandhill Cranes in the same shot. I thought this was a good choice for the theme “fear” as I was afraid I was about to witness a gruesome scene. I am happy to say, the Sandhill Cranes had no fear as they pranced around this gator for about 20 minutes. I recalled photographing a Great Egret going for a ride on the back of a gator during my visit to Gatorland.  I guess Egrets and Cranes have some type of animal instinct that lets them know that the gator isn’t hungry.
