    This merry group happily walked through the wetlands and enjoyed watching their yappy little mutts run up to the water's edge. To my great dismay no gator was hungry that day but maybe next time. They failed to notice the glares they received from two photographers who shots were ruined when their merry little dogs chased the shooters' subjects off.
     
  2. When you need a hungry alligator....

    Great captures Harry, I just don't understand how some people can't respect what others are doing. Guess it is always going to be like that but you got some good shots anyway thanks for sharing.

    I ran into the same type of situation and had a great photo of a Kestril spooked off. I wished this guy was there at that time to take care of fido.

    Thanks Tim, I'm always amazed by the thoughtless behavior I see at times. Fortunately most folks are more considerate.
     
  11. Beautiful Harry...nice and sharp! Those photographers had some serious lens guns.

    That would be the shot of the year, especially the reaction shots.

    Thanks Alex, those pelicans were all over MI that week.
     
  15. Excellent set Harry. They wouldn't even have been a good bite size for a gator.

    Thanks Anthony, I think one could have retred if they had the $ that those attending MIIV had collectively spent on photographic equipment.
