These alligators appear to be swimming in a sea of clouds. In German the word for kite "flying" is the same word for "climbing". Alligators climbing in the sky.
I captured these inflatable flying creatures about two years ago with my iphone while we were out riding our bikes. They are part of a complete sea creature menagerie (photo#2) which are all strung together so that they "fly" in a coordinated pattern.
Maybe we'll see them again this year.
