Some Alligator Drama

This is a ‘gathering of gators’ in a rushing stream of water. Oh yeah, with fish and other delicacies.

Not much pushing or shoving. Lots of splashes and chewing.

These are wild Alligators all piled together in one spot, and with the exception of looking over at me (you can see it in the images) they were well behaved.

These photographs were taken a few months ago, every once in a while I find new ones to publish. They were eating for hours, so I filled 2 memory cards, you don’t find this very often.

 

Little Gator All Covered

Another shared ‘Photo Op’ with Passing By Photo. We didn’t think anything would come of these shots. The only way to get an angle was to hang over a trail boardwalk (water) and push the shutter a few times.

Something a little different.

Little Blue In The Sun

If you read Passing By Photo you may have seen this bird before. I believe an article with similar shots has been published. We both came up on this bird around the same time.

I was pleased with these photographs since they were taken with my ‘walk around’ lens, Tamron 18-400. I’ve been traveling lighter lately.

These images were pushing the lens to the full 400 mm which is the far limit and a weak spot. Ellen will shoot these at 400 also, but she is using a much better Canon 100-400 L series lens. No comparison.

The Tamron will never compare with my usual Sigma 150-600, however maybe I’m getting better at using it.

Note; Ellen and I try to separate or not take the same shots when out together. Doesn’t always work though.
