The world’s tiniest flowering plant, duckweed (Lemnaceae) , grows floating on slow-moving or still waters around the globe.

If you look closely here you will see, floating amongst the duckweed, the American Alligator (Alligator mississippiensis) a Florida native.

This shot was captured in the Jacksonville Zoological Gardens, Jacksonville Florida USA.

Photographed using my Pentax X90 DSLR camera. Set at ISO-80, f/4.5, 1/160 sec.
