From my perspective, I was close enough. Okay, I took this with my 200mm full frame lens but it is not cropped except to make it square. Close enough! This gator was seen in Okefenokee Wildlife Management in Georgia. Living in Florida, it is second nature to see them.
This gator was sunning on the opposite bank while we were hiking in the St. Marks Wildlife Refuge near St. Marks, Florida. At one point, this animal got in the water. We had Heaven on the leash and needless to say, we picked her up and carried her back to the car, keeping an eye on where that gator was at all times.
