Everglades, FL, United States - Southwest States

On this beautiful evening when we arrived at the Pineglade Lakes, we found this 3.5 feet crocodile resting at the edge of the lake. I knelled down no more then 4 feet from him and took this photo. Like any good model he stood perfectly still while the sky overhead put on a show if its own.

WOW!!! Now this is a very intriguing twist to your usual work Jay, which consists mostly of magnificient landscapes! To be able to capture this animal along with the already beautiful scene is EXTRAORDINARY!!
