Gone to See America 2014 Road Trip. Day 9: Clyde Butcher’s Swamp Cottage, Big Cypress National Preserve.

Small Alligator next to the back pond at Clyde Butcher’s Swamp Cottage. Big Cypress Swamp in Florida.  If you look close there is an out of focus mosquito on the other side of the alligators head. It has to be pretty tough to get through the alligators skin.
