I spotted these two on a collision course. The Alligator wasn’t making a wake but he was moving.
The Grebe’s buddy popped up and between them they had more curiosity than the Alligator.
A few minutes later I saw another Alligator drifting along. It was a warm day, in the 60s (15 to 18 C), with more Alligator activity for December than you might expect.
