Is that croc following the crowned plover? I don't like crocs. Don't much like gators, but really don't like crocs! I hope you weren't having over the side of a boat when you took this!

Nice picture! Cool with the crocodile...:)

Springman said...

Hey JM! Crocs would not be half as menacing if they didn't appear to be smiling like that. I get it when you say, "in the wild." Your senses must be reeling with the input when your out in these primeval locations. Cheers to you intrepid one!

Love the bold composition. This has a very abstract quality!

Magnificent timing!

Great picture. It is always fun to find and capture new birds.

Interesting capture. I'm not sure I'd want to be the plover with that croc in the picture. Might end up as a snack.

Cool to see both the plover and croc in the same frame!

Looks like the Croc is just waiting for that tasty tidbit to wander a little closer to the edge. MB
