This Isn't the Zoo

Being a native northwesterner, I had never seen an alligator in the wild before. Tomorrow, I'll put up a bunch more images of my time at Aransas National Wildlife Refuge in South Texas, but for now let's just say that you won't find me wading around in any swamps down here...

So are you zooming in...? You're not actually that close to the thing, are you?

That would be scary...

I had a long lens on my camera, so I was able to get this shot from about 25-30 ft. away. Since he was relatively small, I wouldn't have been too uncomfortable getting closer, but better safe than sorry!
