Bonjour Gérard,
Le thumbnail est un peu discret..en ouvrant la photo une bonne surprise et une image qui prête à sourire. Un crocodile heureux!! Il a choisi une place à l'abri sous le tronc pour faire son dodo.
Original!
Bon après-midi
Anne

Que pedazo de mostruo y que bello a su vez, con esas tonalidades verdes estupendas, y tomando el sol para calentarse. Un buen POV.

Hello Gerard,
What a magnificent and awesome looking reptile. We definitly don't have anything like this fellow living here in Ohio. Shown with wonderful detail and beautiful natural colors. Excellent exposure and great DOF. Well done!!

Lovely "smiling" crocodile!

It brings back Lewis Carroll's poem in "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland":

"How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale!

How cheerfully he seems to grin,
How neatly spreads his claws,
And welcomes little fishes in
With gently smiling jaws!"

Cheers!

Ishi

Bonjour Gerard!

Jolie prise que tu as là! Couleurs bien naturelles, par contre j'ai trouvé le cadrage du crocodile trop centralisé.

Antonio

Hi Gerard,
excellent capture of this croco
