Had a lot of really nice alligator sightings on this trip on Loop Road, weather was just cool enough for them to be on or near the road.

Great shots,Gary. It appears you were fairly close - or using one heck of a telephoto.

Excellent, and interesting, shots, Garry! I like both the first one (triple-header) and the second one where he's draped over a rock.

That last photo probably has the gator thinking "c'mon, just a few feet closer" lol! Nice captures.

Man, the 70-300 L is at the top of my wish list. This just makes me want it more. Thanks for sharing.
