A very curious young American Alligator (Alligator Mississippiensis) swims up to me as I lay on the bank of the water at Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge, Texas, USA.

Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that contributes well to the challenge

Yet another of your superb alligator shots, we are all so lucky to have such an expert in our midst! This is a particularly lovely shot for the surrounding darkness it simply adds an air of suspense and anticipation to the image. The focus has been nailed spot on, exactly where it should be on that gleaming malicious eye. The reflection adds to the overall effect. You are obviously well familiar with these creatures but you're a braver man than I would be, I think I would have scarpered long ago! Thanks for another great entry Ronnie.

I quite like the ominous black surrounding him.

I do like how you abstracted the subject. Teetering on surrealism.
