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.
This alligator went for the blue crab special last night in the salt marsh.
When you hear the crunch, you know the crab is fresh!
You seem to be getting bolder ? Lead boots?
I did not want to interrupt his dinner, but couldn’t help it when I heard the crunch. 🙂
Thanks, glad you like it!
I love crab. Count me in for the next one.
That photo is so good and toothy I can see one tooth is extra worn.
Crab is extra tasty for sure and I had thoughts of it for dinner myself but went with a steak instead. Bet this big boy would have loved a steak too, I’m guessing rare. Very rare.
I think he chipped a tooth. On what (or who) I don’t know.
That is a definite “It’s the food chain, Granny.”!
Yes indeed! Even though it may be tough to see sometimes, it’s still nature in action.
Now that’s a close up! Nice detail on the crab.
He was in nice and close and crabby sounded extra crunchy!
I think I saw him in the local seafood restaurant recently. He has a good dentist, that’s for sure.
He got tossed out of our local seafood market after eating not just the free samples, but half the stuff available for sale. Oh, and he makes a huge mess out of everything.
Yes, nice white teeth! 🙂
Blue crab too. He has good taste.
Oh absolutely! Only the best for this big boy!
Looks to me like that blue crab is attempting an escape. You sure it wasn’t one that got away?
Crabby’s escape attempt failed. In this photo, poor crabby is already crushed and is about to go down the hatch.
He doesn’t know how to eat nice 🙂 great shot. Thanks and Love, nia
He is a messy eater. 🙂 thanks Nia!
Thanks for looking!
Fantastic Phil. What a great capture.
Mr. Gator did all the work I just took the photos. 🙂 thanks for checking this out!
Loving the alligator series. Completely outside my experience (and indeed comfort zone). RH
I never expected when I started this blog two years ago how almost universally popular (if that’s the right word) alligators would be. They are often the most viewed subject and kids in particular really seem to love ’em. Could be the dinosaur tie in, kids love them as well.
Wow!!!! How do you get so close without getting scared he will have you for dinner????? I know the zoom button, great shot!!!!!
He was right in front of me but he paid no attention to me at all. He was only concerned with getting dinner and I was not listed as tonight’s special. 🙂
