Right you are, Chuck.  Mr. Wally Gator was taken at Corkscrew Swamp 
Preserve, which is maintained by the Audubon Society.  The "trail" is a 
2-mile boardwalk which is built about one meter above the swamp.   The 
animals basically ignore the people on the boardwalk, and you get to see 
them doing their thing.  More photos from there are coming soon.

So no humans were harmed in the making of the photograph.

The 90/3.5 Voigtlander is a small, light and very, very good lens. It 
makes a great 180mm equivalent.

I have an old Vivitar T-mount 300/5.5 with Nikon mount and micro 4/3 
adapter. It's surprisingly good at f/11 and decent at f/8.  I've taken 
test shots with it.  But I've never found a good enough reason to 
actually carry it around.  And I'm always afraid it will bend or shear 
off the E-M5's lens mount.  I should get a pistol grip for the lens' 
tripod mount.

Paul, I believe the game is called Scrabble Slam, and it's a card game 
based on Scrabble.  In the players' defense, one of them got a "O" and 
put it over the "A" just after I took the picture.  :-) Curiously, the 
airport pigeon was resting on the rug right next to them, so I got two 
nicely quirky shots in one place.
