Alligator – Spot Light

With the levels low a large number of alligators gathered in one area.  Their fishing skills were good but, of course, I was always looking the wrong direction.  The early morning sun was blocked by the trees casting a dark shadow.  However, there were a few small spots that offered some good light and it was just a matter of time before one slowly moved into position.  Sometimes you just have to wait it out.

    Nice light David. Looks like a Pied-billed silhouette in the upper right corner. Was this taken at the corner of Elm and Spillway Trail? The light filters in like this through the overhead trees back there.
