These two small ponds are on CR-466 in The Villages next to and near the Walmart’s parking lot. I took these pictures on Wednesday, Nov. 27, 2019. That ‘Gator looks to be about 9’ long by the way. I took the photographs from the opposite shore of this pond! I have taken pictures at this location several times in the last few years.
In addition to the Alligator, there were two Little Blue Herons, a Try-colored Heron, a Great Egret, a Pied-billed Grebe, and two Anhingas. Pretty amazing to see all that wildlife so close to commercial enterprises and parking lots!
