Alligator on a Rock

Fifteen Minutes of Fame: Alligator

A young Alligator has taken to draping himself on a rock quite near the shore of the pond in the rookery. Many local photographers have captured beautiful images with reflections, eye closeups and detail of his stripes over the last several weeks.

I couldn’t resist adding to his fame when the opportunity with these reflections presented itself.

I’m pretty sure the rock has been right there but this is the first time I’ve seen anything but a turtle on it. Some branches hanging over it have shifted, perhaps making it a more appealing perch. Plus, there is no worry about sharing.

Here is another view from a few feet away through the downed branches.
