Default Mamma gator hanging out

OK, I don't have the best angle - but feel free to come on down to SC and get a better one

Nice Gator shots, John G. I like your angle just fine, we have 'em here too

I like to view gators from the comfort and safety of my Mac. That's as close as I need to get.
The 3rd image is especially good.
Thanks for sharing.

yea, as you were alluding to john, i would like to see a lower perspective, but not sure I would have ventured that myself either lol.

but i like #3 here, i like the close crop on the eye, not sure i would want to get much closer than that.

Great shots John. You captured a menacing look with those eyes!
But you need to come on down even further south, where we have a lot more gators!

yeah I'd like to make it back to Florida. Always wanted to visit the everglades. Was down at Marco Island in 2009 but with a 4 year old son I don't get much time to get out and shoot wildlife

With the way you captured the detail in that big gator, you definitely should do more wildlife shooting.
