Those things are uuuugly. Glad they freeze out up here on the tundra. A comment on composition. It applies here as well as the bird photo (first post). Both critters have a purpose in their daily activities. The bird and the 'gator are hunting. I'd like to see the composition capture some surroundings that give a greater sense of the hunt. Is the bird staring over a large expanse of water with a sense of hopelessness or is there prey right there. Is the alligator ready to pounce? Where's the prey? Can you put the subject in a more clearly defined setting?
