This is a close-up photo of a baby American Alligator (Alligator mississippiensis) as it hides in the grass along the bank of a lake in Brazos Bend State Park. This Texas state park is located in Needville, near Houston.
I am happily living and enjoying life in the beautiful city of Cuenca, Ecuador, located over 8,000 feet up in the Andes Mountains of South America. Here, I can pursue my passion that is outdoor photography. My wife and I came here from Houston, Texas, where I worked as an information technology manager. I was also a marine biologist for 10 years, so my passion for all things in nature is, well, natural!
