Nervous / by Dave Hileman

Me not him. This is a big alligator. I was on a slight bank and he was 18 feet away or so. To get closer I would need to get off the bank. No thanks. He appears docile but they can move quickly and I cannot. Anyway I tried to get him better in focus and was unable (or unwilling to stand there any longer) so this is the best shot of six of them. .
