Eeep!

I'm kind of glad they don't grow here in the northland.

Whatever you do, don't make eye contact! ;^)

I love it Kyle!

I'm glad to see you had a 500mm trained on that gator! I wouldn't want to get any closer :)

Kyle said...

Yup, just one more reason I'm glad I invested in that long lens. I'll have to admit that after kneeling down on the bank to take that shot as close to eye-level as I could get it, I didn't even consider staying put for a second photo. That stare was more than a bit unnerving!

No. no. no. Too close. Scary. Might have known it would be at Brazos Bend. On a brighter note, I am so jealous of your long lens. I gotta get me one.

Yikes!

Uh, wow... I think he's telling you something with that stern glare. Actually, maybe I'm imagining it, but there seems to be a mischievous twinkle in his eyes as well. I would definitely not stick around for much longer.
