I grabbed this photograph with no real thought behind it. The water was like glass and it was fairly sunny. But really, nothing out of the ordinary.
This is the Alligator the camera provided. It’s really different and interesting, especially for an Alligator.
All I can think of is this particular gator was very dark in color, and clean.
This is the shading a Little Blue Heron gets in some clear light.
Too bad it’s just a head shot !
