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.
Here’s our good buddy Mr. A yesterday after he came over to say hello. He kind of just laid there for a bit looking at me with only his head sticking up out of the water until eventually floating off to find a nice nap spot.
Don’t you just wonder what he could possibly be thinking? Hope it’s not trying to decide whether you’d make a nice snack.
I would love to know exactly what’s going on in that reptile brain of his. I don’t think he wants to snack on me though, I’m too old, tough, and chewy.
What a gorgeous guy! Smooches!
Thanks a million Lucy! Lovely hearing from you! 😀
I’d lose that staring contest.
You and me both. Thanks much for looking and commenting.
You have really captured his primordial nature in this photograph.
They really are about the closest thing we have to a living dinosaur.
Thanks so much for looking and commenting Nia, hope all is well. Glad you liked seeing the alligator!
…. 🙂 But only your alligator! You are welcome dear Phil, have a nice day, love, nia
I will be sure to tell him how much you like him.
Gives new meaning to “Gator Watch”. 🙂
I was watching him watching me. But so often that’s how it goes… 🙂
Don’t you just wish you knew what he was thinking?!
He is probably hoping there will be some crunchy crabs out this season like there were last season. These guys love crabs!
The flat contrast and high key lighting really allows the ruddy tones of his eyes to stand out. That and those scaly horns give an eerie or even evil look to your buddy here.
He would be happy to hear that you think he is evil or scary looking. That’s what he counts on, it’s much better for his reputation. Me calling him cute just ruins everything.
That is a “Look into my eyes, you are getting sleepy” look. I bet he was licking his chops before he submerged.
He can try that hypnotic look on me but I’ve seen it before and I’m wise to his tricks. There are still some ducks around that I bet would fall for that in two seconds. 😮
Whoa, love that orange tint, really enhancing its evil look! B-)
He does his best to look as scary as possible, it’s much better for his reputation that way. Thanks very much for looking and commenting!
Looks friendly. You smiling at him again?
I’m always smiling when he is staring at me. Doesn’t hurt to play it safe.
Stunning. Love his eyes.
Thank you, he is a good looking guy.
