You have the eyes of a hawk if you can spot the hidden beast lurking in the water | The SunAugust 10, 2022
THOSE who can spot the hidden beast lurking in the water in this image have eyes as good as those of a hawk.
The image shows the predator slowly swimming through dillweed in a swamp, and the natural hunter nearly disappears under the water's surface.
Because of its color palette, the alligator almost exactly matches the dark waters.

The video comes from the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge in Austwell, Texas.
