Enjoying a relaxing boat ride through the Okefenokee Swamp on a sunny day, we saw many gators lounging on the banks in the sun or resting in the reeds. We spotted one rather large gator and our guide noticed there was something in it's mouth. As I started snapping pictures, the gator opened it's massive jaws and threw it's prize up into the air. I caught this picture as he repositioned it mid-air before settling back down, still as a statue.
