Not me Monday - I live in Florida!




This is definitely the craziest not-me-Monday post that I have written...
Those of you not familiar with not-me-monday, it is an opportunity to pretend that I did not really do all of the things that I really did this week.

I did NOT grab my camera the other night to take pictures of the sunset. I do NOT have about 1000 pictures of sunsets on my hard drive, yet I still love to get more.

As I was taking pictures I did NOT decide to photograph with the idea of showing the natural beauty and the contrast of the trash.... or something like that.



After taking this picture I did NOT decide to take a step forward and squat down to get just a little closer to the bottle.
As I was getting into position I did NOT hear a LOUD snapping sound in the water and see this...



I did NOT jumped back, but reassured myself that it was probably as big frog, or fish or something like that thinking that I was over reacting.
A few seconds later I did NOT see this...


A coworker did NOT recently warn me that she often sees alligators while running at the lakefront!

When I got home I looked at my pictures, zoomed in on my pictures and
I did NOT see this image in the first picture posted...
 
After looking at the picture I did NOT have my foot less only inches away from a wild alligator and on his turf,  I would never be that foolish!!
(If you click on the first picture posted and look in the lower left hand corner you will NOT see the same thing.)



I did NOT continue to take picture of him... only from a much safer distance.

Yikes! No alligators here in NJ. The worst wildlife moment for me is stepping in goose poop... lol
