Circle B Bar Reserve

My sister lives in a city in Florida called Lakeland....and they do have plenty of lakes. Many of the lakes are within Parks with assorted recreational offerings.  This trip, we visited a place called Circle B Bar Reserve and walked the nature trails, checking out all the wildlife.

Brief Site History:

The property was jointly purchased in 2000 be the Southwest Florida Water Management District and Polk County's Environmental Lands Program. This parcel will play a key role in the preservation efforts of the Upper Peace River restoration.

Oak hammock, freshwater marsh, hardwood swamp and lake shore. Tremendous bird population, including a variety of wading birds, waterfowl, ospreys and bald eagles. Alligators inhabit Lake Hancock and may observed from a distance.

We, of course, were on the hunt for Gators.
Maybe they're this way 
See any?
See any now?
