[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Crocodylus niloticus,has somewhat deserved the reputation as a vicious man eater.Its proximity of much of its habitat to people means run ins are frequent.Its indiscriminate diet means villages washing clothing by a river bank might look just as tasty as a wildebeest. About 200 people die in the jaws of a crocodile each year.

Hi Erwin. I hope you have a good distance capturing this shot. I don't really like to disturb the sleeping crocodile :-)
This is a great shot with water-plant on the back. Vivid details in nice close framing. Regards. Jusni

Great shot! Nicely camouflaged as well :-)

Hello Erwin,
What a funny shot! But the beast doesn't look too friendly, I wouldn't wash my cloths close to him. Excellent light-management! Did you take the picture from a boat? You seem to be dangerously close to it!
Kind regards

Hello Erwin,
this creature is very much feared since childhood. You have presented it so real. How I like to note the water plants on tis back. Very seldom seen in this style. You have emphasised the details so well.
It acts like a log...well presented.


Bonjour Erwin,
Très belle et originale publication de ce prédéteiur.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Erwin,
Now this is something that I definitely don't get to see every day here in Ohio. This fellow doesn't look like he minds his picture being taken, but I see he still has his eye glued on you. Excellent detail and beautiful natural colors. Wonderful DOF and good exposure. Well done!!
