An American Alligator (Alligator Mississipiensis) enjoying a beautiful sunrise on 40 Acre Lake at Brazos Bend State Park, Texas, USA.

I was so happy to have found this small gator (about 5 foot) in clear water just at sunrise. Knew it was going to make a spectacular photograph.

Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that meets contributes to the open challenge well

Well done Ronnie, you were well rewarded for waiting in the right position. That is a part of the effort that goes in to your lovely images there is a lot of patient preparation, stalking and waiting for the right moment to get that extraordinary image that stands out from the rest of the crowd.
