AMERICAN ALLIGATOR RETRIEVES ROAD KILL by 


AFTER PHOTOGRAPHING BALD EAGLES ALL MORNING ON MY WAY HOME FOR LUNCH I SAW A OPOSSUM ROAD KILL IN THE ROAD WITH A ALLIGATOR ABOUT TEN FEET FROM HIM, THE ROAD WAS FULL OF BUSY TRAFFIC. I TURNED AROUND QUICK AS I COULD CAME BACK TO CAPTURE THE LARGE ALLIGATOR RETREIVING THE OPOSSUM AND HEAD TO THE NORTH SAVANNAH WITH HIS LUNCH. THIS PHOTOGRAPH WAS TAKEN ON INDRIO ROAD FT PIERCE FLORIDA A BLOCK WEST OF THE VERY BUSY INTERSECTION OF INDRIO AND US#1 MY CAMERA WAS MY NEW CANON XSI MY LENS WAS MY TAMRON AUTO FOCUS 28 TO 300 MM MY LENS SETTINGS WERE F 7.1 AT 1/500 MY ISO WAS 200 FOCAL LENGTH WAS 300 MM THIS WAS AN AWESOME SIGHT TO SEE A ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE AND I WAS THE ONLY ONE WITH A CAMERA AND NO ONE ELSE IN SIGHT. ONE OF MY LAST EXPERIENCES I HAD TO SHARE. HAVE HAD 2,566 VIEWS OF THIS PHOTO

    Awesome shot, I had no idea they ate roadkill.

  • Thanks a lot Troy. My first time I ever saw them eat roadkill but it`s been so dry and the Savannas has been dried up nothing much to eat I am not suprised.. They climb six foot chainlink fences to get to barking dogs Tom
