Hey Grady,

We need to figure out how to get you images embedded into the post. You will find that you get more feedback if you are able to do this. I don't flickr, so I am not sure how it is most easily done (you may want to ask others though because I know people do it!).

Cheers
James

Hi Grady,

May I ask how close you can get to those gators? Also, when you are in the park, is it required that you are with some sort of guide? It seems to me that this looks very dangerous (unless I am missing something)!

the rangers recommend a safe distance of 30 feet. I get no closer than 10 to one on land, that gives me enough time to haul my old ass out of there if i happen to piss it off. if they get disturbed they usually just slide into the water and submerge or swim away.
If you happen to get near a nest they'll get aggressive.
As far as the park goes, you don't need a guide. it is set up with the public in mind. the beauty of it is the size. It has gravel covered walking trails, around two lakes. A complete loop is 6 miles.
A well maintained habitat.

Lots of nice shots here. I would never get within 10' of a gator on land. Maybe 20 but not 10. They can run up to 10 mph for a short distance, so be careful.
