    Ah, love it. An old SAAB if I'm not wrong? Amazing to find an old beat up car like still on the road...(thinking of the rigorous yearly inspections in Sweden). I've had more than one good ol' car not getting passed them pesky inspectors :frown:

    Anyhow, here are a few of my May pics

    Hi by RRcoleJR Photography, on Flickr

    You can click thru to Flickr for full resolution photographs.

    We are getting a lot of flooding here (last week and this week) and I hope the baby gators are still there when the park reopens (they closed it down due to flooding). This could be the 2nd year in a row where flooding takes out gator nest.

    These are really excellent. Knowing how to shoot subject "X" is always the name of the game. Oh and having the cojones to get this damn close.........:drinks:

    #4 is my favourite!

    Thank you. I am still learning how to shoot gators, but feel like I am getting better each year. I almost lost my cojones getting that first baby gator shot, story to follow in my next thread.

    Edit - I have also started using the 3:2 ratio for my gator shots. While I really do love the 4:3 ratio, 3:2 fits the long thin profile of the gator a lot better.
