Love the pose you got the Alligator in! The clarity is great for the scales, markings, and the lighting. I've seen several alligator pictures in an attempt to try to find great reference material for my art and this piece hits one of my problem areas when I attempt to reference for art with alligators with the back of the head. Usually, people go for a 3/4ths angle but the near overhead view for this is really impressive. You almost got the legs (you can't control the lake so that's not your fault) while it's drifting and that's another area I have found does not have great reference postings. A great capture for sure.
What do you think?

I found this source but it is not that helpful: www.wlf.louisiana.gov/general-… This says they grow between two and twelve inches per year. This one was about three feet long in 2011. So that comes out to between four and nine feet long today.
