I noticed 2 Alligators, around 5 feet (1.5 m), with a huge pile of black mud between them. Different enough to get a shot since it might be interesting.
The mountain moved. To be precise the mountain turned and looked at me. So yes, it got interesting.
Above is what I saw from a distance. His big ‘back end’ looked like dark mud.
Just an FYI for other photographers. If you have a camera that shoots fast continuous, like 10-12 a second, it’s louder than you think to wildlife. The ‘S’ option might come in handy around big guys like this. It is silent, just slower. I gamble, but that’s just me.

This ‘super sized’ guy slipped away and I never did see him again.
