We spent about a week in the Everglades and had a wonderful time. I just posted about a dozen wildlife photos if anyone is interested here (scroll down a bit for the first pic). The photos can be enlarged by clicking on them, and most benefit from a bigger format.
While there we also saw a Double-crested Cormorant (bird) riding an alligator. Something a veteran Park Ranger of 15 years told us she'd never seen before. Which isn't surprising, because it's not every day you get to see prey ride its predator like a birthday party pony. There's a very short (and somewhat grainy) video below, but it's probably worth the 26 seconds it takes to watch. I added a soundtrack so turn the volume on.
