Camera Critters-Smile Pretty


Awhile back, I found this great meme called Camera Critters. I love the pictures and decided that with my wealth of critter pictures down here in SW Florida, I would join in and I have for several weeks now. I would like to have you hop on over to Camera Critters. There you can either sign up for your own post for Camera Critters or see lots and lots of other great critter pics. So, now that you've done that--here is my critter for the day.

When you live in Florida, chances are whenever you see a pond or a lake, you will see an alligator. And yes, they do have a mouth full of teeth. And when they show those teeth, they almost--ALMOST--look like they are smiling. Here are a bunch of pictures I have taken of smiling alligators in the Everglades, here on Sanibel, and up in St. Augustine.

All great images. They do look like they are smiling :)

The fourth is a little too close for my liking - hope you were using a zoom lens!
