These two small ponds are on CR-466 in The Villages next to and near the Walmart’s parking lot.  I took these pictures on Wednesday, Nov. 27, 2019.  That ‘Gator looks to be about 9’ long by the way.  I took the photographs from the opposite shore of this pond! I have taken pictures at this location several times in the last few years.

In addition to the Alligator, there were two Little Blue Herons, a Try-colored Heron, a Great Egret, a Pied-billed Grebe, and two Anhingas.  Pretty amazing to see all that wildlife so close to commercial enterprises and parking lots!

More Birds Arriving

Sandhill Cranes

The Winter migration is underway and more and more birds are arriving here in recent days.  This will continue through December or early January.  I have been seeing small flocks in the skies and on the shorelines of local lakes.  I also have included a photograph of some smaller freshwater turtles that happened to be sunning themselves on the shore of a local golf course pond.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!
