Congrats on a fantastic close up, Kumiko!

"Only?" That's about a foot longer than I'd want to get close to, Kumiko! :-) Congratulations!

Thank you so much, Ellen and Monnie! Thank you KK for picking this up today! Thanks little alligator for modelling!

Omitting extraneous details you strengthened the visual impact of this baby gator as its head barely rises from a small opening! A terrific win today, Kumiko, big congratulations on another excellent composition!

Well seen & captured, Kumiko, in its natural environment. I like the way the head pops up from the swampy surroundings with all the algae-like particles on it. His eyes still look ever watchful. Big congrats on another great winner today!

Well seen and captured. Almost looks like green pea soup!
Dee Langevin commented on April 01, 2009 13:03:
Great capture Kumiko! Love the camouflaged head, peaking up from under the algae. Congratulations on your POTD!

This is such a great shot, as this baby alligator cuts his way through all this algae, and lily pads! Very incognito on his part..great color and excellent clarity! Congrats Kumiko!

Very well done Kumiko! The camouflage is amazing and makes for a really appealing image...Congrats to you!

The image of the alligator looks like a beautiful still life picture. Well seen this, Kumiko. Big congratulations on this POTD!
