Glad to help!
It looks to me like this is either an alligator or a caiman, which is like an alligator. Alligators and caimans are crocodilians. Although it may look like it is a lizard, I am most sure it is a crocodilian.
You should probably switch this sighting to "Arthropods" instead of "Other Animals" because crayfish (or crawdads) are arthropods.
That's an awesome picture.
It looks like it's some kind of hover fly (syrphid fly, flower fly, Syrphidae). Here is a link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syrphid_fly...
Thanks, I looked it up on the internet and that's what it is. I always thought they were stag beetles but I guess not. Thanks again.
