Happy Father’s Day to all Dads out there and Happy Nature Photography Day to all!
If you are interested, you can learn more about Nature Photography Day on NANPA’s Website. Go out and take some nature shots today, if you have the opportunity!
Today’s shot is a close up of an American alligator (Alligator mississippiensis) which was taken in Florida’s Everglades National Park: now, is it only me or it just looks like Godzilla? 😉

Thank you very much, dear B! Hope you are well 🙂
Great shot, definitely looks like Godzilla on the ground. 🙂 Happy Father’s Day!
Thank you very much, Camilla – on both accounts! 😉
Godzilla Junior? 😉 Happy Father’s to you, Stefano! Have a good one.
Thank you so much, JG: so good to hear from you! Hope all is wonderfully well with you: I miss your posts! 🙂
Yikes, I hope you had a serious lens. Otherwise, you are way to close to Godzilla! 🙂 It’s a great photo.
Thank you very much, Patty! A quality long lens is one of a wildlife photographer’s best (and heaviest) friends. 😉
LOL! That’s so true! I’m glad you had a long lens and kept safe. 🙂
Happy Father’s Day, Stefano!
Thank you, my friend: same to you (belatedly, I am afraid…)!
Love the close up – what a beast! If it wasn’t for the eye looks a bit like the giant granite rocks we get round where I come from, Cornwall, England.
Thank you so much for your kind comment! I love your photography and your landscapes from your beautiful part of the world, by the way. 🙂
I’m sure this big guy would be thrilled you compared him to Godzilla! Alligators love to be considered huge and scary! 🙂
Well, you sure know a thing or two about them, don’t you Phil? 😉 Thank you for stopping by! 🙂
Fierce! Hope it was a great Father’s Day!
Thank you very much, Elena: it sure was! 😉
Hope that Her Majesty made a fuss of her amazing dad on Father’s Day!! I bet that Francesca cooked you something delicious too 🙂 🙂 As for this reptile shot, I cannot wait to show Aaron. He’s going to love it, the texture of the skin is amazing!
You obviously had a great Father’s day, Stefano, I thought you would. 🙂
Great shot of the alligator. I saw none of them when I went to the Everglades… 😦
Hi Stefano! Belated Happy Father’s Day! I both love and shudder at this photograph. Look at those claws and the scaly skin and that blank stare. Reptiles fascinate and repel me at once. Awesome, brilliant photography as always!
Happy Belated Father’s Day, Stefano! And what an awesome image. Rather scary!! You are a brave man!
