More Amazing Wildlife Photography
Before we get to the pix, I am tempted to say that I don't agree with Nick Kristof that Obama's speech was the best since Kennedy's Catholic speech in 1960 -- because it may have been the best since Lincoln's Second Inaugural. Which I covered, as you know, when I was working for Horace Greeley. But read the speech again and decide for yourself.
Ancillary question: Is the negative reaction on the Right a foreshadowing of the obstructionism during Obama's (still hypothetical of course) first 100 days? Um, what speech did the WSJ editorial board hear???
Okay, now on to the pix, as promised in the headline.
Road gator basks in the sun.
While this gator lurks in the water, hoping that humans (who taste like chicken) will take a dip.
A very rare Florida Cord Snake. Its bite induces hallucinations, paralysis, extreme conservatism, and sometimes death.
Don't be fooled by this Leather Fish -- it feigns death to lure the scavenger, then strikes at your face with razor-sharp teeth.
While its sole-mate sleeps nearby [thanks Krisse P.].
Rare glimpse of primeval palm tree forest, also known as a "hammock." Linear propagation befuddles botanists.
