While in the Everglades, on the Port Saint Lucie side, I got lucky and caught this guy on a break. I thought it was cool too that be breaks up the reflection so seemimgly evenly.

    The photo has some beautiful reflections, the presence dell'aligatore was not bad.

    Excellent alligator shot! We have alligators here and I enjoy getting an opportunity to go to Brazos Bend State park, which is fairly close to where I live. I never leave there without at least one alligator photo.
