With a 6 ft Gator under our kayaks June 11, 2015

We had a 6 ft Gator under our kayaks up Blue Springs Run this morning. We didn't notice it at first with all the fish swimming about. There were Longnose Gar, Spotted Gar, Tilapia, Mullet, Catfish, Bream and then we saw the Gator about 8 ft below us and you could see it perfectly. He was just laying there like a log. The Green Herons have come out again and the juveniles are looking more and more like the adults. Later in the back bays we saw Limpkins, a Purple Gallinule with a chick, Little Blue Herons, Snowy Egrets and Great Blues too. We got to see 2 Barred Owls and one just could not take his eyes of a particular spot. He never moved as we passed by him. The overcast skies made for an great day and the wildlife made for a cool paddle.
