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.
Looking at this alligator and egret from last week…I’m not sure if the egret can’t believe what he is seeing or if the alligator can’t believe this goofy egret is giving him the close up hard stare.
Both, however, seem surprised to be almost nose to beak though. 🙂
What a long skinny neck….. this is a hilarious photo Phil!
Thanks Sally I thought it was pretty funny as well!
Love the face-off!
I’m glad you enjoyed this one 🙂
So funny! You have such a great skill for capturing the unusual moments!
Thank you Rick I really appreciate your kind comments!
Oh my gosh, who’s gonna win here?
Ha ha 😆 After a short time they both just ended up leaving the area. A truce for today.
A great animal interaction – the kid you only expect in a children’s fiction book!
Seeing creatures like an egret and alligator interact wild out in nature is one of my favorite things to photograph. Thanks for checking this out!
Si stanno sfidando e credo che quello più stupito sia l’alligatore 🙂
Penso che l’alligatore è molto sorpreso. Grazie Pat.
This fragile Egret has a lot of guts, i must say 😉 … // Maria 🙂
Yes that egret may be too curious for his own good. 🙂
Wow. Could the egret have stretched his neck any further?! I love how his body is far, far away from the alligator! What a silly pair. This made me laugh. And the alligator does look like he’s smiling. Or is that a smirk?!
That egret really is quite comical I don’t remember seeing one act like that before. The alligator seems more then a little surprised to be checked out so closely! 🙂
What an amazing capture, Phil! That is funny, yeah, what are you looking at?
The funny part is that “what are you looking at” could be being said by either of those two. 😀
Simply amazing catch!
It was a lot of fun to see for sure! Thanks Gunta.
It was fun to see!
wow that is an amazing photo and to capture a rare moment.
It’s fun to see such different species interact. Thanks very much Callie!
What a brilliant picture – a standoff par excellence, Phil! I’m not altogether sure I like the look in the alligator’s eye though – I hope the egret got the message!
One of my favorite aspects of nature to view and photograph is the interaction between two such different species.
That alligator I think looked more surprised then angered by the egrets close up inspection.
Thanks very much Maggie!
Whoa. Now that’s a dangerous liaison!
It did look a bit dangerous but they ended up getting along. Well…sort of anyway. 🙂
This is just about the funniest pic of yours that I’ve seen. Absolutely hilarious. 😀
I’m glad you got a laugh out of this shot Sylvia I thought it was rather hysterical myself. 😀
Great shot Phil.
Thank you Jan I appreciate you checking it out.
That is a priceless shot!!
Thanks Deb, I thought it was kind of comical. 🙂
Lots of humor in this one, Phil. That neck is out so far it’s reaching into tomorrow. 🙂
I did get a laugh out of this as well Steve plus I’m glad I got the photo to look at later. I don’t think I appreciated the scene as much when I was there looking at it. Sometimes taking photos gets in the way of the full experience I believe.
LOL. You have a knack for capturing the most interesting encounters.
I try to keep my eyes open to spot anything that might be out of the ordinary. 🙂
What an amazing moment, and great photo!
I really enjoy watching such different species interact, it’s a large part of what keeps me going out there so much. 🙂
This is a fantastic snapshot, dear Phil! ▲
I am so happy you enjoyed this photo, thanks! 🙂
