Alligator Resting in Afternoon Sun

Detailed Description

Alligators are very abundant in the freshwater wetlands of Everglades National Park and can usually be seen along the Anhinga trail in the park, especially when water levels are low.  This ~5-foot gator is resting on exposed limestone bedrock alongside the trail.
