For Watery Wednesday:

Happy April Fool's Day!

Gator Amongst Ice in The Kennebecasis River...

I couldn't resist a little photo editing silliness in the spirit of April Fool's Day.

The photo does show the Kennebecasis River near the Gondola Point Ferry crossing, taken this past weekend ... BUT ... the gator is actually a baby gator I photographed several years ago during a swamp tour near New Orleans.

He, the gator seemed to be enjoying you photographing him that he really has to stick out his head. Cool shot.

I too did a double take. I should have been quicker having just subjected myself to several April 1
stories on NPR.
