I'm downloading the picture hoping that others can see the gator- I was out hiking on the bittern marsh early this morning and saw two of them gliding along in the marsh. The marsh has been dry for awhile and has only rehydrated with all the rain we have gotten. Therefore, I was surprised to see two alligators!
