Two Ponds, Two Alligators, Different Light

These two Alligators were swimming in different ponds, taken about an hour apart on a recent June morning.

The bank where I was standing was much higher above the water in the second image, the sun was higher in the sky, and there was a remarkable difference in how the water appeared. The second Alligator was moving a little faster, too.
