Teenage gator…

Alligator, Ritch Grissom Memorial Wetlands, Viera Florida

Clearly this young Alligator had been hanging out in the duckweed for some time before it climbed out on the floating Palm trunk to warm up in the filtered sun. Just barely awake. It was less than 20 feet from the road and only 10 feet from the edge of the water, so it was at least somewhat alert. Besides you never know when irresistible prey (or very stupid tourists) will happen by. Sony RX10iv at 600 and 316mm. Program mode. 1/250th @ ISO 100 @ f4. Processed in Polarr and assembled in FrameMagic.
