I had originally assumed that these bugs were both Oncopeltus fasciatus, and so I had labelled the first photo observation accordingly.

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/214673706

However, then it was pointed out to me by @fabienpiednoir and @callicladium that there are two species here. This is in fact an example of interspecies mating, so I just now duplicated that first observation in order to be able to create this one.

The gulls are facing out into the air above "Hells Gate", an open area of sometimes very turbulent saltwater.

It is situated where the water from the Long Island Sound mixes with the East River, which is a tidal inlet, and the Harlem River, which joins up to the west with the Hudson River.

The NYC area has some complex estuarine geography.

This wild alligator was roaming around a suburban neighborhood which backs up to a lake and to a nature park (Flatwoods Park). He was first found in a garage and later next door before he settled in a front lawn for the night. The weather was sunny and 90 degrees Fahrenheit. This has been identified as the American alligator because of its location (geographically and habitat-wise), overlapped jaws, wide snout, and distinctive dark coloration.
