Great shot! I hoped you used a telephoto lens on that shot.

It looks like it's waiting for its dessert.

Magnificent work

Many years ago when my brother and I canoed down the Loxahatchee River, we encountered a large gator, and I got some good shots (Olympus OM-1 with Kodachrome 64, I think). Later in the trip we encountered a Florida state park ranger, and I mentioned that I'm from Vermont, and had never seen a gator before that day. He said "Gators have a bad reputation, but they're pretty much harmless. But up in your area, I'd be terrified of meeting up with a moose."

What could I say? In certain circumstances moose can be dangerous, but most of the time they're very docile. Gators, on the other hand, scare me half to death. GW, I couldn't have gotten your shot with a 500 mm lens.

Really not funny bitten by your subject.



My subject is ok though












My wife told me to stay from my subject though with a long 200mm lens - hardly a conventional choice for portrait lens at all
