“Hey, that leg looks very tasty …come a bit closer, my friend.”
This shot was taken on September 12th, 2012 at the North Carolina Aquarium on Emerald Isle, USA. It was captured with a Canon EOS 30D, through a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro lens with no filters. The aperture was wide open at f/2.8 with a shutter speed of 1/15th sec (ISO 100). The camera was mounted on a Manfrotto 555B tripod with a Manfrotto 222 “pistol grip” head. A remote shutter release was used to prevent camera shake. No flash.
Yes, there was a thick glass barrier between me and the American Alligators.
