“Just Don’t Get Any Crazy Ideas”

A great egret stares down this young alligator in the salt marsh yesterday evening. The egret was fairly sure the gator was only interested in snacking on some fish, but was keeping a close watch anyway in case the youngster got any funny ideas.

A wading bird like this egret will often be attracted to an area where an alligator is feeding because the gator will get the fish all stirred up and in a panic which makes the fish easier to grab.
