Gators of the Swamp

While in New Orleans last weekend we went on an airboat tour of the swamp for my birthday. We were lucky enough to see many gators including this twelve footer on the tour. With my 300mm lens, I was able to get up pretty close for this shot.


Our guide was sure to mention that this area of the swamp was known as "Bayou Self" because if you make one wrong turn, your "Bayou Self".
