Babadono looks like you live in a beautiful area ūüĎć

That's exactly what I was thinking, driving to work could look much worse.

You get up in the mountains much, not counting going home to your mountain.

The Milky Way galaxy as seen in Wisconsin. Clicking on the photos seems to show them in better resolution.

Haven't seen that in years except at my brother's place out in the country!

Gorgeous color in that sky!

Especially in So Cal. It is not a cowinkydink that my drive to/from work is 17 miles of country road:)

Do you winter in Florida? Love the Wisconsin pics. My parents retired to northwestern wisc. and I lived between Madison and Milwaukee. It's a beautiful state, except for the winters.

I moved from the Eau Claire area about 4 years ago. I agree it is a beautiful state with harsh winters. This pic is from the Hayward area, a favorite destination of ours. We still try to make it up to Wisconsin for a month or two in the summer when possible.

Do you see what I see, an alligator in a tree?  This is near St. Augustine, FL. I love kayaking, but don’t think I would like to look up at that.

Very nice area north of Eau Claire. My parents, both long gone, lived between Spooner and Hayward, just outside of Springbrook. Used to canoe on the Namekagen...

 

Those were the days...

The good thing it's a youngster, the bad thing is the parents are probably in the same area, not good in a kayak, or canoe, for me anyway.

Is that a croc up north?

Reason I ask is that snout seems pointy. 

Crocs are supposedly even more mean!

It could be, looks different than the gators in my back yard pond. 

 

Marvel, good memories for sure.  That area is amazing and not as crowded as it could be. Especially once you are outside of Hayward.

It wouldn't be impossible but Parrish, Fla is a little too far North for a croc. But you never know

 

To me it looks like about a 4' alligator, judging by the lotus and other plants sizes. When there that size they look much leaner and long and skinny. They seem to get much bulkier as they grow in length, after 6-7 feet they ten to get much heavier per foot. A long time ago I had little ones as pets and removed 5-6 from our pond in the backyard, a stray one moves in every other year or so, they average 3'-4'. 

Being from Louisiana I have seen them all my life and it's not a problem, but we moved an hour North and put a 1.5 acre pond in the yard. It was quite a surprise to see one swimming in the pond while cutting grass, we are nowhere close to any swamp or big bodies of water. 

 

I am no expert but have seen alot of them from 50 years of fishing and hunting, it's never a problem unless you don't see them first.

I can’t imagine having them as pets. Ponds here have gators. You just plan on it. I don’t mind for the most part. It isn’t good to surprise them as I found out once on accident, but that is another story.

Well, it was before I was a supposed adult, it was a fenced-in space with small alligators and turtles with a small pond for them, I would put minnows in the pond for them to eat. One thing I will says is when they are small they are really fast to turn and bite, way faster than any adult and the teeth are very pointy when little.

 

Since we put the pond in the yard and no swamp for miles I didn't expect any. My neighbor said they may move after bad rains when other ponds overflow they follow branches looking for different ponds. I also read during mating season in early summer they tend to roam much more than normal, who knows ?

We sailed under the famous coat-hanger - The Sydney Harbour Bridge
