Just as I turned my head this big Alligator broke the surface. At first I didn’t see the fish, I noticed the arched back and thought he would lean back, growl, and do the aggressive ‘profile’.
It didn’t take him long to finish the fish, but I did get a nice series here.

Note; an Alligator ‘profile’ is when they raise both their head and tail out of the water as high as they can. Usually a deep, and loud, rumble (growl) is made to alert any other Alligators (sometimes people) nearby. Profiling is to challenge for a territory or mate. A big Alligator can vibrate the water around them, almost waves.
