We’ll have to do lunch sometime…

run from or fight its enemies is ‘lunch.'”

Gatorland’s Rare White Alligators

This rare white alligator was found in 1989 in a swamp in Louisiana. The egg nest contained 14 white and a handful of non-white, normal colored alligators. Gatorland, located in Orlando, Florida, has the world’s largest single assembly of these very rare anomalies of nature. They are not albino – they are leucistic, meaning they have some pigmentation. You can see this in the deep blue eyes and splotches of pigmentation around the mouth.
I was 7 feet away from that mouth with nothing between it and me but George, the guy that works with him routinely. As I clicked off my shots, I kept reminding myself George was a closer and more convenient meal. I also wondered if this monster objected to the use of fill flash. Good thing I was using my Gary Fong collapsible LightSphere to diffuse it. Speaking of the LightSphere, I was very pleased with the continuity of the flash-produced light, despite the shot being taken at a close distance with a camera mounted flash and a highly reflective wall of glass immediately behind my subject.
