A Patient Gator

This alligator was patiently waiting in the shallows for fisherman to leave the area. It was really interested in what remnants were left on the bank. While a nearby gator was more focused on a snail (unrelated to the fishermen), this one wanted to check out fish leftovers that were being picked at by the birds.
