They are very impressive, and maybe cute, but only on the other side of the fence...

Tammie Lee said...

Woody said...

Some serious chompers going on there. I understand they move pretty quickly too!

No no no. Too big and fast for my cup o' tea! Prehistoric and fascinating.

Crikey!

What a amazing animal. Nice shot!

Laloofah said...

Wow, there's a critter you don't see every day. Well, where I live anyway... not even every other day. :-)

S/he appears to be amused at having his (her?) photo taken! And look at those pearly whites (from a respectful distance!) - no tartar on those babies!

Neat photo!

Barb said...

Jill - That startled me! I hope you had a loooooong zoom!

Leovi said...

scary....

Genie said...

I know you know what you are doing, but I hope you were at a safe distance from this hungry looking fellow. I saw lots of these guys growing up in south Florida not so far from Lake Okeechobee. They frightened me then, and I think they are even more scary now! Besides my fear, your shot is awesome.

Marka said...

Looks like he's getting ready for round two of lunch.

Gengen said...

Fearsome shot.. Happy WW!

Lois Evensen said...

Goodness, what a shot.

Arija said...

He may be smiling ever so sweetly but i still cannot bring myself to love very large reptiles.

twobarkingdogs said...

ugly. nasty. smelly. but, nonetheless, a great capture!

Everything And Everywhere said...

That crocodile looks so scary. Great capture.

We love us our alligators! Quite a few of our friends and family members think we're crazy. They're probably right.

This one looks like he's smiling (in anticipation?)

Karen said...

WHat a handsome fellow and a terrific shot.

catsynth said...

That is quite a smile!

So cool! The only ones I have ever seen were in a zoo or alligator farm. Not cool.
