Not Happy, Jack

American Alligator gaping

This month's picture comes from Mike Burke who hails from Virginia in the US. American Alligators are popular photographic subjects, but less common are good quality portait shots of wild individuals. To get a shot like this, however, you generally have to get quite close...

Mike explains: "I recently spent some time in the Florida Everglades and had the opportunity to take some wonderful photos. This one was taken about a 30 minute drive west of Fort Lauderdale and about two miles into the Everglades. I was drifting around some vegetation and found this guy. I like this photo because he rose out of the water and posed for me with his mouth open. You can almost count his teeth."

Probably not a good idea, Mike!

Would you like to enter your best photograph as a potential Pic of the Month? Send it to me and I'll include the best here each month. Each year I run a competition where the best photograph each year is awarded an Ilfochrome print. This year there will be a special prize to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of this website. The only criteria for submitting a photograph is this: it must capture the attention.
