Two summers ago I watched a gigantic alligator emerge into a tree canopy shaded berm and settle himself in for a rest. I REALLY wanted a shot of him getting up and crossing to the other side so I waited for two hours. Two hours! Finally an approaching thunderstorm seemed to motivate him to get back in the water and I was rewarded with a shot of him descending into the water.
