Great shot, I used the quote so other people can see two shots of the same bird because its then twice as nice when you see it twice.

Where abouts was that taken exactly, blue?
I know you told us once but I have forgotten the exact spot.
He's looking a bit peckish in that first shot, don't you think? :D

gtibri, is that silhoutte taken in the same area as the sunset photo from a few days ago? Another sensational photo.

If you can't beat him Bri join him. You want to photograph a big Croc Bri?

So pop on down to London and hang around Elton John's residence and ask him if you can photograph him singing his famous Crocodile Rock.

Adelaide River on the Arnhem highway down near Wak Wak a bit after going past Humpty Doo.. there are three companies running croc tours with each having their own part of the river... there’s one company on the west side of the bridge that are the original croc tour operators... we ended up going with them on their small boat which is what i want to do anyways... they have bigger boats that are 2 stories with glass window on the bottom deck.. pfft to that... i wanted to get close with that element of ‘danger’.. although i didn’t realise how close they got which was enhanced by everyone on the other side of the boat coming to my side when the biggest croc in the river was just arms length away tipping the boat closer to him...

Bri, the biggest were around 5.5 to 6 meters long.... mere whipper snappers... :wink:

Ugly? Fearsome? ... i dunno... i have a lot of admiration and respect for them.. they've outlived most things on this world of ours...

i saw a good video on youtube recently where these guys were fishing and brought a big fish up onto the bank... then this croc comes out of the water to try and steal the fish... one of the guys hit it on the nose before he could get it and th croc high tailed it back into the water.. classic :lol:

I might be wrong but do they not date back to prehistoric time?

The crocs on the Adelaide river next to the bridge are tame
they feed them four times aday for the tourists They know there coming
as soon as they start there motors and swim out to meet the boats

And they dangle a chicken above the water to see how high they can jump.

Thank you Danet. And it is great to see them in their natural habitat.
And I took that photo under great duress as I and the other tourists on the boat were being eaten alive by one billion cannibalstic mosquitoes. Ok a bit of wild exaggeration, but there were lots of them.
