According to WFTV news, Richard Jones of Palatka, Fla. captured the oddly serene photo Sunday morning in the Ocala National Forest. “I snapped a lucky picture right when the gator slipped into the water and before the raccoon jumped off and scurried away. Without the context you’d think the raccoon was hitching a ride across the river. Pretty amazing,” Jones told the station.

Pretty amazing, indeed.
