Gator rising to the surface at sunrise

One must always be aware when at the Wetlands or natural areas here in Florida. Anywhere there is water or a canal there is always the possibility of Alligators. This guy surprised me as I was taking photos of a Egret when he suddenly rose to the surface in front of me. The early morning sun was just beginning to rise and lit him up perfectly. I really was pleased with the low key look. The water is almost black looking early AM. I have been able to concentrate on camera settings when it comes to low light this past year and I am enjoying using a fixed lens rather than my zoom. The lower f/stop offers me freedom when it comes to low or no light.
