Some Days Are All About The Alligators

The thing about shooting in the Lowcountry is that even on a slow day there’s an Alligator somewhere.

Some days there is an Alligator everywhere.

When you have the right spot it can be best not to shoot with a long lens. Getting wider images allows you to get a few Alligators in the same shot. There were at least 4 in the above photograph.

The shot above was all about the big guy along the bank, until the other 2 photo bombed it.

Here you can see how narrow this canal was. Both sides of the bank are visible. I took the one below a short time after since neither of us had any particular place to go. He had to swim by, I had to wait for him to go. No rush.

The last few images were captured as we walked along a dike. These Alligators were all semi-hiding and doing absolutely nothing.

So, this day I didn’t get any decent landscapes or dramatic bird images. The best I could get were a bunch of 700 pound lizards.
