Camouflage by Aidyn Levin

Artist’s Statement: While canoeing in a swamp in Louisiana, we kept our eyes open for alligators. We thought we were really great at spotting them, having counted dozens of alligators, when in reality we were not doing so well. It wasn’t until we were practically on top of this guy that we noticed him– and I immediately whipped out my camera to capture the perfect camouflage that nature provides.
