Snappy Drifter by Indigo76 Snappy Drifter by Indigo76
During a trip to San Diego with :iconseptsky:,
We spent our 3rd and final day at the San Diego Zoo
Check out: "Adventures in San Diego Part III…" here!
We stopped at the Crocodile pit for some nice photo ops at the pool side.
The glass was very dirty and about 4 inches thick, so I hunted down the only clean spot and pressed my lens against it.

Shot with my Canon 20D and a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 Telephoto lens.

Snappy Drifter by =Indigo76 Suggester writes "This is an incredible photograph. To get such a calm shot of such a brutal hunter is unbelievable. The reflection is an added bonus for how amazing this picture is. It in no way looks like it was taken at a zoo!" ( Suggested by Ryser915 and Featured by kkart )

on top of being not only a smurfin photographer but you also play in a band?

i learned about compisition and now i understand the meaning quite clear. the colors and light is really excellent here, smooth, and quite clear! great shot here man!!

these things one would be fairly hardpressed to achieve with a digital as far as im concerned.

Yup!....ahh the good 'ol days of being in a band and slamming booze nightly...
Fortunately I realized how bad that was for me and one thing led to another
and here I am, Photographer on DA ;P
Thanks for the props man!
"Cheers!" :ahoy:

shot from my van window at Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge -- 30,000 acres of unspoiled wetlands.
Gators are everywhere there.

hmmmm. not sure. We saw big ones and small ones that day -- and I cropped this one so close, there is not really anything you can do a size comparison with. There were adults and juveniles in the reserve.

this one was a large adult

after we saw it, we no longer went swimming in the Trinity river.

Good call on the no swimming :laughing:

yeah. we thought so. We had seen alligator slides along the bank on our first trip up river, but did not really think anything of it, and went swimming after about an hour's travel upriver.

This is what we saw once we went down river.....

and thus ended our desire to swim in the Trinity!
