Common duckweed is a very small light green free-floating plant, often found on quiet ponds in a dense colony, with 1 to 3 leaves, or fronds, of 1/16 to 1/8 inch in length. An alligator surfacing from under a layer of duckweed can be almost impossible to see.

Good catch, truly well hidden. Great use of a long lens.

Great job of spotting the gator through the covering of the duckweed. The eye is quite prominent and enhances the sense of the stealth of the alligator moving through the duckweed.

Your photo is absolutely amazing! To be able to spot that gator disguised under that duckweed is one thing but to get such tack sharp details is entirely another. Glad you had your 600 zoom lens to use and you didn't have to get any closer - I hear photographers are a favorite delicacy of gators! Smile
