[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this shot the day I bought my Canon S21S, at a park in Kissimmee, FL. I noticed some people standing at a railing looking into the water, and this fellow was who had caught their interest. I love the way the water was coming up over his face. Don't those eyes look intense? What do you think of this shot?

The American Alligator:

The American Alligator has a large, slightly rounded body, with thick limbs, a broad head, and a very powerful tail. The tail, which accounts for half of the alligator's total length, is primarily used for aquatic propulsion. The tail can also be used as a weapon of defense when an alligator feels threatened. While alligators travel very quickly in water, they are generally slow-moving on land. However, they have the ability to sprint for short distances.

Hi John,

You did well capturing the gator.
You needed a faster speed as it was heading in.
A good effort.
Where is Jordan Ontario?

I like it John. Good capture of this beast, it looks very dangerous. Waves on water and gators eyes looks very good.
