The other day I published an Alligator that was crawling through thick, really thick, mud. When he spotted me he stopped, I moved on. (click here to view first photographs).
The following shots were after I walked passed a second time.
This is hundreds of pounds dragging himself back towards a small stream of tidal water. He was deep in the muck.
He ultimately did reach the few inches of water, but it did make his work easier.
A short rest and he moved off to where he had started.
You never know what you will see out there.
