We REALLY enjoyed our visit to the park today...very interesting conversations, tips and stories of where to go birding, where to drive for short trips to see more nature, tips from fellow photographers, everybody on the boardwalk today had something to share...one guy today had a HUGE camera lens and had captured a photo of an alligator chomping down on an egret in his mouth...he missed the initial grab but got the shot shortly after...taken in this very same area awhile back, he showed it to us on his camera....guess a couple of pythons have been spotted on the road going past the park as well...python have no predators so they are fast becoming an invasive species in the Everglades. Another story was told that they found a pregnant female with 59 fertile eggs inside it...ugh! People are allowed to hunt pythons down here, they are becoming such a problem....We could have stayed on the boardwalk for a couple more hours, but it was getting late and time to get back home......it won't be long before we leave for Texas...a couple more days in beautiful Naples and then we will be doing the Willie Nelson thing...."on the road again...can't wait to get back on the road again...."
