I’m convinced that Alligators can get bored. This was typical gator behavior.
I was standing up the bank of a large marsh watching a flock of Egrets too far to photograph. And of course the critter above slowly comes up and glides over.
Their ‘face’ doesn’t give off much of an expression, something to do with all those scales and teeth.
When they slip over all they want to do is watch. Now I’m obviously not going to pat this giant on the head, but I find the whole interaction fascinating. Just remember ‘social distancing’.
