Along US 41 (Tamiami Trail) is Florida’s best gator-watching. At almost any point in the road West of Miami and East of Naples you can find rare birds and alligators. This “Happy Gator” is resting on a cypress tree stump, soaking in the sun.
This location is near Shark Valley in Everglades National Park.
Taken as three exposures using a Canon 5D, Tamron 28-300 VC lens, and processed in Aperture and Photomatix
