This image was taken unexpectedly a couple of years ago. I was looking to photograph birds when I spotted this Alligator sitting calmly in the water near the bank. I slowly got down low on my belly, so I could capture a low angle shot of him looking me in the eye. I was very pleased with the outcome and thankful I had a long zoom lens so I didn't have to get close to such an intimidating predator. He allowed me to photograph him for several minutes before swimming off in the other direction.
