This was taken in mid July. A different color photograph of this encounter was published in a previous series. I found this shot in a ‘to do’ folder and processed it in B&W.
This image is only formatted for 9×12 since we were so close. Shot under 300 mm.
I noticed a large Alligator climbing out of a canal and thought I would hurry up the dike to catch a shot as he climbed out. I may have been faster than planned, or he changed direction a little. Whatever it was we both surprised each other in the middle.
He was moving fast past me fast and we both kept eye contact. Lucky I also got a few quick shots.
