Wow Yvette...you are a brave soul. Not only did you go kayaking with the gators, you took your camera as well! Good thing you didn't fall in...would have meant a double whammy of dealing with the gators and your wet equipment.
Be very very careful..This is alligator mating season and can be very agressive.
Stay far far away.
DON'T GO THERE
*LOL* And I thought kayaking over submerged logs was tricky!!! Great shots!!! I don't have those critters in my kayaking areas, thankfully.
You should be using dry sacs or dry boxes for your gear when paddling. When I'm just easing around, I still lay the camera in the bottom of the boat and cover with a towel to prevent drop water droplets from getting into the camera and lenses etc.
When I was in the Keys kayaking a few years ago, I had a hammerhead shark about 5' off the stern! They love the taste of human flesh - one of the few sharks which do! Be careful out there - you've just changed places in the food chain once you go into the water......
