The image feels over sharpened around the teeth and nose.

Why's he eating a stick? Rough times for the gators?? Nice shot, I like the crop.

Nice capture with his mouth open, even if he is only munching on a stick. He still looks formidable. Contrast is a little strong but he's a harsh sort of creature so that's OK. I'd clone out the bright spot on the upper right.

Contrasts are a bit hectic - too much blow out in the whites. A daring shot though!
