|A young gator lurking in a lake. Some people were feeding him crackers (they were off to the left of the scene), which I gathered wasn't unusual, since he proceeded to lurk in front of each group of people along the shoreline in hopes of more food. Someday that will end badly for someone ... at the very least the poor alligator.
