Watery Wednesday



This fisherman is much braver than me! He's standing waist deep in Lake Jackson and yes there are alligators and snakes in that lake. If you enlarge the picture, you will see a boat out on the lake in the distance. To see more wonderful watery pictures, visit Watery Wednesday.

Waist deep in a lake with alligators? Oh no, not for me! Nice picture.

No way...I wouldn't do that! Just thinking about the snakes gives me the willies, let alone the gators.

You are right, I couldn't face the water!
Cool image!

We could use some of that water. I watered a little this morning and Patty watered a little last evening.

He must be very familiar with the waters! I don't think I'd like doing that either :-D

Darla said...

I see them doing this a lot. I would not get in that lake either!

Mama-Bug said...

I wouldn't be standing out there either!

Oh, mercy! And he doesn't have on a shirt! Wonder about the mosquitoes, too. Great find for your photo!

I've been in water with snakes. It's not fun. I've given them a good thrashing with my fishing rod.

That looks so tropical to me, hard to believe it's the US. He's brave - or foolhardy!

Oh, Lois! What a beautiful place!

I'd much rather be in the boat!!! I hope he caught something for all his hard work. Yes, I am enjoying seeing "what all shows up" at my birdfeeder. Mickie :)

Whoa! I never would be that brave or want to catch a fish THAT BAD. Very nice picture though. MB

This is a super shot, Lois! People are nuts! I remember my daughter and her boyfriend, some years back, swimming in one of the rivers in central Florida which was known to be full of gators!

Actually, I think this guy should worry more about the snakes than gators!

Lisa Wilson said...

Pretty photo! No way would I get in that water!

Lynette Killam said...

I love this shot! Even knowing how dedicated true fishermen are, I'm not sure he should be out there with alligators nearby...yikes!

Great Watery Wednesday, Lois...:)

Alligators and snakes? No thanks, I wouldn't be standing there!

RED SKY IN MORNING

Red sky in morning,
Sailors take warning!


Who knows what might happen out on the sea?
Waves riding high,
Waves to the sky,
Waves crashing and dashing all over me!

Red sky at night,
Sailors delight!


Leeward or windward we sail with no fear;
Water is calm,
Healing like balm—
Ahoy, fellow sailors, landfall is near!
