Great shot of the 'gator, but it would have looked much better on a surface than being held. Of course this may have been the only way you could get the shot, so maybe I'm being unfair.

though the hand provides a nice measure to tell how big the baby is, it really distracts from the shot, and the isolation of the gator might have made for a stronger composition. I like the focus on his face, though wish his whole body was more in focus.

The watch is very distracting. Nice gator though.

I'll bet he misses his mom. Set him free!! Wild animals were not meant to be handled like this!

Ok. Is this the same one that was in the bathroom scarring the young lady?!

Great shot of the gator, but the hands and watch are a bit distracting to me
