Here's a different perspective of an American Alligator I shot today at the North Carolina Aquarium. I think his eyes say it all!

I took it with the built in flash with the focus right on the eyes. It was tricky not to get a flash glare from the glass. Finding the right distance and angle was key. Thank you!!
