Alligator Head Scratching

Allligator Head with claw on it, photograph by Lorelle VanFossen

This image continues to make me laugh after all these years. We were photographing the Alligator Farm in Saint Augustine, Florida, and Brent spotted this alligator off to the side with a tree leaf on its nose, and both of us jumped back when another alligator plopped its claw down on the head of the one we were photographing. He just left it there, and the first alligator didn’t seem to mind that there was a paw in its head, and we kept photographing.
