Photographer's Note

This up close and personal of an alligator is not the best possible shot, but it *is* the best shot that was possible, at least if I wanted to come back to post it. It was taken on the grounds of Magnolia Plantation in Charleston, SC, from a tram that was taking us around the grounds away from the main part of the plantation, to see the various critters and landscape.

This guy was no more than 10-12 feet away, I think; I was forbidden to stand up, so I had to crane my neck over my wife, who was sitting next to me (and between me and the alligator!) to take this shot. These are very scary animals.
