g is for.....

it's time for the A-Z Photo Challenge - G brought to us by martha.  i would have completely missed this if it hadn't been for Nancy and linda posting today.  thanks guys!  :)

gator...this is chucky at the gulf shores zoo...he made national news a few years ago when he escaped during hurricane ivan....i'm glad they found this 1,000 lb, 12 feet long beast and put him back in his pen...for his safekeeping of course.

                                       this gull was also taken from my recent trip to gulf shores.

              

                                               and how about this green fly on green leaf??

                     

green heron ...i know...you're probably thinking green??  when the light hits his back just right, it's very green.  :)                                                                       

                                            

it's not too late to join in the a to z challenge...just be sure to leave your link here!

I especially like the green fly pic....that is very cool.   Unfortunately the freakin' alligator is not coming up for me.   I'll try again later though.
Thanks for the mention...and you're quite welcome!

I like them all, but the gull picture is very, very nice.  I evokes a certain contemplative mood.  Well done!

You did great with the 'G' collection.  I'm glad they found Chucky too!  My youngest son arrived in Pensacola just days (more like HOURS) before Ivan.  He spent his first month on clean up duty.  That's another story.  But, I will say you got me wanting to get back to Florida so I can get some of my own 'G' photographs. :-)

Love all the pictures, but Chucky really stands out. I'm glad that they were able to catch him. My over active imagination is picturing walking out into my yard and finding Chucky staring at me.--Sheria
