Gator takes cover

Gator hangs out a tiny pool of water ...

This gator hole had an interesting design:
The willow worked like a shady cave which led out into a deeper-water crease
on one side of which was an elevated bank for sunning and probably a nest. 
And for good reason:

It's bone-dry marl all around as far as the eye can see.

The marl prairie that surrounds the gator hole dried up by March
Granted, you can't see all that much from so low down!
