This gator mom kept a close eye on me as she chased off a Great Blue Heron (the flapping wings about five seconds into the video). Her hatchlings were safely tucked in the hummock behind her. She does a nice impression of a log at the end.

Yes, I was very wary of her. Plus, she appeared content to form a boundary at the edge of the water, keeping between me and her babies. It was cool to watch her!
