I found this alligator lurking in the swamp of rust and peeling paint on a leg of the old water tower in Dunnellon, Florida.

FEATURED in Complex Simplicity, April 26, 2010

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

  • If you lived in Florida you would see an alligator mostly submerged, with those big eyes stalking something! LOL Thanks, Debra! :-))
