Alligator Dragonfly, Hilton Head Island, South Carolina
A dragonfly briefly rests on an American alligator's (Alligator mississippiensis) eye. Alligators live in the southeastern United States, inhabiting freshwater environments, such as lakes, swamps, and marshes. This dragonfly buzzed the alligator for a few minutes before briefly alighting on the alligator's eye.
