THE PICTURE OF THE DAY, 11/12/2013


American Alligator
1/40 sec, f/6.3, ISO 51,200 – Taken 11/11/2013

“American Alligator”

My family and I had the opportunity to take the “Behind the Seeds” tour in The Land pavilion in Epcot’s Future World.  One of the stops on the tour is the area with the fish tanks, which include hybrid bass, catfish, and the American Alligator.  I had the Sigmonster on my Canon 1Dx to make sure I could get the best possible photos and then noticed this little fellow, the American Alligator, hanging out in the water giving me a dirty look.  I took the occasion to lean slightly into the tank, zoomed in, and fired away at the alligator before he swam away (camera secured with BlackRapid strap, of course).  The red color is from the canopy that covers that particular part of the attraction and it definitely makes the alligator look much more ominous.

EQUIPMENT USED FOR THIS SHOT:
