You gotta be kidding me. What an AWESOME SCARY CAPTURE. Poor turtle. I hope this isn't near your home. I hear they at times find themselves in Peoples backyard. He is Huge! Good job on the clarity. I would have been shaking too much to get a clear shot. Really Cool! An award shot! Lol. I just notice how white his teeth are. If I could I would give you several recognitions for this one.

Thanks so much Susan. I appreciate your enthusiasm for the capture. Yes, it's near my home. Most of the time when they see us coming to close they jump back into the water. The only time you need to be very careful is during mating season. We have great security where I live, so if we think one is acting to aggressively we call security & they call a trapper to come & remove them. Thanks again. Sandy

Love this, absolutely amazing. One of my favorite places to be is in the swamp watching the gators.

Sandyfriedkin1942 July 16, 2014
Thanks so much. This wasn't taken in a swamp however. I live in a community that was once an alligator farm. There are ponds that are connected to canals that allow these guys to come from the swamps to us. They are free to move around as they please. This was taken as I was playing a round of golf. We have a local rule that is, that we get a free drop if our golf balls get to close. LOL.Sandy
