Is that for real? Whenever I go to Florida I look for these darn things, but have never seen one outside of a zoo.

Do you take this shot at the zoo, Jacob? Just had to ask.

You couldn't get him to turn around and smile for you? :)

Now there's a cuddly fellow! How fast are these beasts? Could you outrun them, if necessary?

Ah... This is another real-looking mockup of a gator... I'm almost fallen for it!

Have a nice day!

It's beautiful gator Jacob! Maybe not very friendly creature but looks great:)
Re your comment - the photo was taken last September in Rathlin Island. It's a small island in the Northen Ireland, one of the most amazing places I know! Can you imagine - only 70 people live there, and the wildlife (includind seals and puffins) is terrific!
Have a great day:)

Is he really that small or is this shot deceiving? I'm still scared of him, no matter! =)

He looks ready to spring on hie prey. An American alligator was found in Australia a couple of years ago wandering around a camp site in NSW. They never did find out how he came to be here though. Nobody came forward to claim it either.

Alligators almost in your own back yard - how exotic does this seem???

Jacob, I think this is one of my favorite photos of yours I've seen so far. I embiggened it as far as it would go, and the colors and reflections and composition are really wonderful.

Love this photo Jacob. The sun, the shadows, the water. Fantastic.
