Baby Gator Hilton Head, South Carolina
Featured Photo: Baby Gator - Hilton Head Island, South Carolina - this photo is a perfect example of forgetting the basics. On a recent trip to South Carolina I packed what I thought was all the photo gear I might need, except a polarizing filter. I somehow left it out of my bag. A polarizer should always be mandatory gear for a nature / wildlife photographer. The filter would have reduced the glare from the water, making more of this two foot aligator visible beneath the surface. Taken with a Nikon D600, Nikon 70-300mm VR lens @170mm, aperture f/5.6, shutter speed 1/80s, ISO 800.
