American Alligators @ Lake Woodruff NWR

On our trip to Lake Woodruff NWR we saw quite a few American Alligators in the channels along the paths. In other years we saw more, but they are not my favorite photo subjects, so it was fine for me. This is a closeup Head shot that was taken along one of the channels near the entrance. Other years we saw them on the paths or the shoreline. But this trip they were mostly in the water. It was hard to get good shots of them because of the reflections of the grasses and other plants along the shoreline which made the background busy looking.
