American Alligator
Photographer: Barb Dunlap
Location: Hilton Head Island Wildlife Sanctuary
Story: 
I was standing on a bank next to the water and was about 8 feet away from this alligator when it suddenly turned and swam quickly toward me. I decided it was time to make a hasty retreat. What I won't do for a nice photo!
