VERY effective capture my friend. At first I thought it was a rock the baby was on, and then I realized it was the mother :shock:

Wow - what a wonderful opportunity to photograph this! I am impressed. Nicely done, too, stacked in opposite directions. How did you get them to do that?

LOL I'm such an idiot - I thought the baby was facing the body of the Mama. :roll: I guess I am just warped all the way around. And I was being facetious when I asked how you got them to do that.

Same Gator family, but a little further out.

Thanks so much for all the positive comments. This is the first time I have posted any photo's, have been kind of shy about it. I was a very active amateur back in high school (Nixon was Prez) Just got back into it a couple years ago with a 3 MP Olympus. Bought the Nikon last summer for a trip to Sydney and absolutely love it.

I was walking on a bank about four feet up from the water. Lets me get pretty close, without feeling threatened. I was using a 1.5X extender on my Nikon 5700 (420mm approx) So not as close as it looks.
