In Search Of

This past Saturday, I made an early morning trip to Brazos Bend State Park where I met up with fellow photographer Doug Haass. We were looking for the baby alligators that hadn’t been seen for a couple of days. After searching for awhile Doug spotted one tucked into some plant growth. There were at least two or three. One came out for a quick look but didn’t stay long before disappearing. I think they are on their own. Mama is no where to be found.
The first picture is Doug walking the trail. That’s a heavy load but it’s the tools of the trade. (Notice how nice that Canon looks when it’s taken by a Nikon – ;-). The second is the baby alligator coming out for a quick peak. The next two ( Red-eared Slider Turtle and Dragon Fly) were taken with a 2.0 teleconverter. Still working with that set up under different conditions.
