Not your everyday selfie
29

There are plenty of gators around the places I go to shoot birds.  If I'm not seeing birds and an alligator is close by, I'll take a few shots.  It was getting late and the setting sun was hitting its eyes at a nice angle.  I took a few head on as close to water level as I could get.  Then I moved closer and got some from the side with the sun at my back.  I was trying to get the sharpest focus on its eye that I could.  Normally I use auto-ISO, but it was up ~ 4000, so I set it to 800 and hoped the IS would be sufficient at the slow SS.

I was a bit surprised to see multiple reflections of myself in the image.  Other than heavy cropping, this is SOOC.

Without Oly IS, this would be a godawful mess.
