I went on a short walk the other day and got in a few shots while I was about. As always CC is welcome.

Great shots! Thanks for sharing.

First shot looks like the biggest gator. 10' or so? I like to photograph young gators that still have the stronger pattern like in #4.

Good series. Where are you located, and where were these taken?

I think this is a great series, also.

I would love the chance to shoot these animals in the wild, I can't believe some people live amongst them...I would imagine it's one of those things that you get used to as a local. Are these crocodiles or alligators?

Thanks guys, definitely appreciate all the kind words!

No worries, I always make sure to hike with someone I can easily outrun (j/king) :lol:

Great shots! Thanks for sharing.

Thanks! Yup, he was definitely a fair sized fella; I came across his larger brother a bit further down the spillway, unfortunately none of the shots really came out.

Good series. Where are you located, and where were these taken?

Thanks! I took these down by Brazos Bend SP; spring is definitely the time to head over and get in a few shots of these guys. The trails are very easy and the park rangers are very nice. I tend to stay by Elm Lake and 40-acre lake for the best gator/bird shots.

Very impressive series

Thank you very much, definitely appreciate the encouragement!!!

I think this is a great series, also.

Thanks! They're definitely a lot of fun to shot; generally their body language and some verbal hissing will let you know if you are too close. However, sometimes they can act a little squirrely, like #5, and you just have to keep a closer eye on them (plus it helps to hike with someone you can easily outrun :p). These guys are alligators; Although, big salties (saltwater crocs) are definitely on my short list of animals to shot.


Thanks,
tx_40d
