I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
Last week this first alligator was floating along in the marsh pond with the setting sunlight making the water sparkle as he went by.
Then last night the overcast sky combined with no breeze gave the water a smooth, glassy look.
Nice effect, the reflections…
Glad you like them!
Oh my – that second shot is dazzling, Phil – what an animal! 🙂
A vote for shot #2, thanks! 😀
Great reflections, great shots.
Thank you very much Jan!
This is breathtakingly beautiful. Again. My favourite is the scond. Great capture, Phil!
Thanks very much and another vote for #2!
Wow, stunning! ▲
I am glad you like them!
I love those sparkles 🙂 and the eye reflection in the second one 😀
Hey thanks very much Paula, I’m happy you like the gator pics!
Bellissima la prima, con i riflessi del sole nell’acqua 🙂
Sono felice che ti piace la prima foto! 😀
Those are two gorgeous shots. I love the water in each. Beautiful!
Well I’m very happy you enjoyed these!
Normally I love the sparkles, but your buddy gets a bit lost in them. He looks like a jeweled necklace in the second shot. My vote goes to that one.
Ok cool, we have another vote for #2! Thanks Gunta!
I can’t decide which one I like more. They are both so different yet so beautiful!
Thank you Molly I appreciate your kind comments!
I like shot 2 the best, just showing the gator. Looks like he is giving you the “eye” too.
Well looks like #2 is our winner, thanks! And I do believe he is giving me the eye!
Why is the water two different colours in the first shot? I don’t have a favourite, they are two very different pictures each with their own merits.
It is funny about the water colors, it happens often and naturally with the angle of the water ripples reflecting different colors. I didn’t alter it in any way that’s really how it looked!
I like the second one the best I suppose.
sometimes makes me afraid… 🙂 how smooth… but really? just waiting for the right time! for what… for attack of course 🙂 Great shots again. Thanks and Love, nia
Oh they are very well behaved and only having fun out there Nia!
Thank you for looking!
What excellent captures, especially the second one.
Thanks David, I’m glad you enjoyed these pics!
I love them both, each beautiful in their own way.
