Alligator








Alligator

After the fog lifted and the sun came out, an American alligator crawled out of a nearby pond to sun itself. Even though it was around 7 feet long, I managed to get a few good close-ups using my 70-300 IS lens. Someone told me that alligators were dangerous if they made a rattling noise. When this one started, I backed off quite a bit just in case. These animals can move quickly when they want to!
