San Marcos Springs

Sometimes your most interesting moments throughout the day don’t transfer well to photographs.  My sights in the Springs at the historic Meadows Center included a large alligator gar searching for dinner, turtles sunning on a limb, tons of fish swimming in the clear fresh water, a mother nutria shepherding her babies into their den for safety, and a view of the water flowing from the deepest part of the springs from inside a glass-bottom boat.  The aquarium on site also allowed me to photograph one of the endangered salamanders.  This is a beautiful place that made for an enjoyable afternoon, full of wonder.

    Wow! I am so jealous of your alligator gar – how lucky you were to get that shot. Superb!
