Alligator Vs. Turtle

For Mother's Day mommy wanted to go fishing and birding at Brazos Bend.  We were fortunate and excited to witness an alligator devour a turtle for dinner, although we were in a crunch for time (ha ha), we stuck around for 15 minutes to observe.  CAUTION: watch before sharing with little ones especially sensitive ones.

 Tray's "BIG" catch.
 Lexi was frolicking about trying to grasp hold of the dragonflies.

 Alligator was about 10' long.
 This is a Purple Gallinule.  An absolutely beautiful Rail.  Green back, purple neck and breast, with a pale blue frontal shield.
