I stumbled upon this little guy when kayaking in the Chesapeake Bay (Maryland) this past summer. He was really cute. He had a burrow behind him that he was protecting and he was making clicking sounds at me warning that he was going to rough me up if I got any closer.
Once we finish getting settled into our new place I’m hoping to explore the Texas outdoors. I’ve already seen alligators from the car but I’m hoping to actually get some decent photos. I just have to summon the courage to get close enough and of course rent a really nice lens so that the closest I have to get is like fifty feet, but even that’s scary.
