Colleen’s challenge photo prompt
Spy in the thickets
camouflaged behind that lens
filming death’s emissary
Upclose, flirting with danger
Wildlife extraordinaire, Balaji Malliswamy, pit his revered arsenal of filming skills against the apex predator of the deep.
Hiding in the vicinity of the mother gator’s burrow, surveilling her every move.
But unbeknownst to him, she was watching even closer. Pinging his position by his scent
and holding the flash of his lens with her hypnotic gaze, a deadly ancient technique.
The night Swamy would take his special shot would be his last.
Cold blooded, the mother gator lowered her body temperature and slipped past his thermal sensors, rendering his night vision cameras useless.
He was all but blind to her scaly green and brown hide and that’s when fear cascaded upon the night and dread gripped him.
There she was, slithered besides him, tense and ready to spring.
Baring the deadliest smile he would ever witness.
Hope you enjoy this.
Man has the power to create but nature is the ultimate creator in my opinion.
