in florida we have 3 kinds of gators, ones that eat fish, ones that eat dogs and ones that eat men. most people think this is a very large gator but this is actually a dog eater. ive seen gators that r 4 times the size of this in lake kissimmee. they scare me! i love florida and i even love gators, but they scare me.

a good friend of mine, jerah, wanted to see some more pics of fern. so, here you are jerah. I shot all of these “from the hip,” which means without looking through the lens. you can see that shes not very happy when i start shooting and then she starts to ham it up for the camera. i posted them small but if u want to see them larger you can click the image.

while fishing this weekend we saw a lot of snakes. Its spawn time so we were flipping which means the boat is up in the weeds and when it gets hot the snakes come out to sun. this one is a harmless water snake. you can tell by the eyes and the head. most water snakes have bands around their bodies like a moccasin so dont go by that. most of the time when people see a water snake they automatically assume its a moccasin and kill it. im a big fan of snakes so i dont even kill moccasins but i understand why others do but please leave the banded, brown and green water snakes alone. They r very friendly and only help.

if youre born into the kirby family, youre born a fisherman. like ive said before, ive been fishing since i could walk. since before i could talk. its a huge part of my life. from left to right: cannon(me), mason, dustin, connor and addie. from when my brother and i took his two sons fishing last month and they schooled us.
