Close Up Alligator Watching

This is probably the first close eye to eye photo of an alligator I have taken. I have never seen eyes, and a look, like this.

I could have missed this shot but he jumped off the trail into the water with a splash.

At most he was a foot long, a baby by this swamp standards. He was more afraid of me. The fact that he survived here shows how cautious he was.

    1. Thank you. Being a young one really helped. The skin colors, lack of green ‘stuff’ stuck on him, etc. gave it a clear look. The eye staring like that made the photo. Also we were so close that if he had been one of the regulars….well it would have been a major blunder on my part (out alone yesterday) and no time for a decent photograph…..exit quickly 🙂
