Eye of an Alligator
High on an embankment, I followed this American Alligator slowly floating along a canal. I thought the water and reflections were pretty and added a nice touch.
The alligator slowed down to a stop. So I stopped too, and remained still in my safe spot. Good, I thought, now I can try some close-ups of its eye.
When I processed my photos, I was not expecting to find this….
Alligator’s Eye Reflecting Me #1
S/he started moving again, so again I slowly followed. I had no idea that I had captured my reflection in the alligator’s eye.
In this next photo, you can see a wooden road barrier I am behind.
Alligator’s Eye Reflecting Me #2
The alligator floated eventually into the sunlit water, overexposing the scene so I turned around and left, hoping I got some good close-ups. 😊
