Finally shot my first alligators in the wild. They are both babies. The one in the algae is probably 2-3 ft long and the one on the log was probably less than 2 ft long. He was shot from about 150 ft away, thats why he is soft in the eyes, he was so small and so far away.

Cool. I much prefer the second shot with the excellent reflection.

Definitely the one on the log is better, but it was a hard shot from a long distance and he was so small. Funny thing about the one in the algae, he was the first one I saw. I must have over looked him ten times before I realized it was a gator. The first couple shots of him, just his head was sticking out. He looked like a piece of wood. After a couple shots, he raised up like he is in this shot.

Do you think I should level the log?

Nice set AT. I would not level the log in this case.

I agree, the log looks great as it is.
