How close is too close?

This is one of the pics from the recent Hilton Head trip.  We were biking around Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge and got a tip that a rather large alligator wasn’t too far away.  Of course, we had to go take a few pictures.  I’ve shown this picture to a few people and they asked how close I was to the animal.  In hindsight – maybe too close.  Video after the jump – I took this picture with a Nikon D3000 and a 55-200mm zoom lens.

Pretty close?
