Little known fact, Alligators can jump. And, a lot higher than you would think. I have seen it, completely unexpected.
A low flying Heron or Egret doesn’t expect it either.
Their tails are extremely powerful, make up half their body length, and they must use them to push upwards.

No mishaps, I hope. Nice shot!
None. I’m always amazed how they interact so closely.
