We were visiting the Middleton Plantation yesterday. A beautiful place and I am sure much more grand pre civil war days - when it was looted and the main house burned out. We were near the end of our two hour walk through the grounds when we rounded the corner and there on the lawn next to the lake was this fellow sunning himself - it was 76 F yesterday. :)
He was about 5-6 feet long I think - didn't measure him.:) I quickly switched to my zoom lens, snuck in a comment about having a telephoto lens and got these pics of him. David let me get within about 20 feet of him. He did not seem too interested in me and would have likely dove into the water had he been upset; or so I reasoned.
Y'all have a good day and make sure that snow is gone by the time we get home.
