Someone is Coming to Dinner

On my last trip to the Okefenokee a large gator decided he wanted the fish i just reeled in. A nearby angler had yelled " GATOR COMING" but I could hear the water rushing over the gator as he sped toward me over the gentlemans yell. I flipped the fish up in my Jackson Kilroy and grabbed the camera. I wasn't fast enough to catch the white water flowing off this gator because he had started to slow a little when he got close. By the time I located him with the camera there was no need to zoom! In case you are wondering, it was just a tiny bit shorter than my 12' kayak. The fish stealing critter stayed with me till I could unhook the fish and throw it far away from the both of us. No fish for you thieving lizard!
