Spring is definitely here; during my walk I could here a number of big male alligators calling females (and warning other males). It sounds a little like a deep growl, but very cool...made me wish I had brought my video equipment as well...

Here are a few shots I managed to get off; CC is welcomed and appreciated.

Thanks! Its funny you would mention that, when I was hiking back out I noticed a large clump of feathers in the trail that were not there during my hike into the swamp. But, the gator looked happy :p

Thanks! Yes sir, if you're ever down around here during the springtime I definitely recommend heading over to Brazos Bend SP or Anahuac national wildlife refuge; lots of good shot opportunities.
