Pictured: The egret on the back of an alligator.
This brave egret picks an unlikely perch to stand on while looking for her lunch - the back of an alligator.
The big white bird makes a daring move as she sweeps down from the air and lands on top of the 8ft-long predator.
She was on the hunt for some lunch, and used her new perch to closely scan the water for fish.
Luckily for the brave egret, the big gator barely moved a muscle and let her observe the water before she flew off to a nearby tree. SEE OUR COPY FOR MORE DETAILS.
