The Kill...

There I was taking a nice picture of a large alligator slowly motoring towards me. What I didn't realize was that he/she was on the hunt. That is, after several shots, I stopped shooting. But, then, all of a sudden (read that I wasn't ready), there was a big commotion in the water and I saw the gator's mouth was open. Started shooting like crazy (no time to reset settings,) and here's the outcome.
PS: Disappointed with the quality of the inserted images. Not that they were crystal sharp, but they looked better on my PC. I think that the resizing for insertation problably has something to do with the quality deterioration. Nonetheless, you should get the idea.

I get the idea, and you got the captures good. Thanks for your instinctive reaction to shoot this.
Nature is brutal and I respect the survival mechanism all wild creatures have to live by.
