Hehehe! Very funny title Peter! These crocodiles look like during a true conversation :)
It is rather "strange" object as for you, but it is really nice to see a little different photo :)
Very informative note :)
TFS and have a nice evening!

Great action moment captured and those huge mouths look so scary. But I would have liked to see the entire scene....would have given the shot a different dimension. Anyway, a superb image. Kudos.

Merhaba Değerli Dostum Peter!
Bu ürkütücü hayvanlara bu kadar yaklaşıp, böylesi detaylı foto çekmek gerçekten yürek ister. Kestrel çalışmamı favori fotolarınız arasına almanız büyük onur benim için. Çok teşekkürler.

This was a perfect photo op. The trio of crocodiles all with their mouths wide opened is fantastic. Excellent details of their skin, teeth, and all the way down their throats. A great shot and I'm glad they were too busy to bother your boat.

I've seen a few crocodiles in my time,but these ones look like absolute monsters!
That one on the right looks SO fat!
These must have been nearly as big as your 8 metre boat.
An amazing shot.
Cheers & TFS

What an animated conversation! But I would avoid to be there and give my opinion too:-)
Interesting and original shot. Well seen.
Have a nice afternon

Nice composition with excellent low POV.Good detail and sharp image.I also like the idea of having a BG that is not to much OOF.

You know what I like best about this one? It was shot at the full 300mm:-) Even when relaxing these creatures look frightening..I suppose in some cultures they carry a different feel, but in my short years in Florida back a long time ago I saw my share...with no camera..Very interesting and unique pose!

Hello Peter !
I don't think I really want to know what they are talking about - better stay away from them ! :-) Their teeth ook really impressive ! It is really a fantastic capture, to have 4 of these dangerous animals, mouth open, on the same picture. Very well done !

Look at those gigantic, cave-like gaping mouths!
This is a very timely action shot you took during your trip to Ethiopia, Peter.
Despite the harsh sun, you have managed a good shot of the congregation of these 'talking' Crocks.
Thanks and regards.

Looks very nice, but only in picture :-) I think these reptiles could tear you apart and eat in three seconds or less :-) Anyway - great picture with funny scene. Animals look like old ladies sitting and talking about gossips. Beautifull colour of water BTW. I like it.

I hope you was far from these impressive animals. However, close-up is fantastic, with great clean and bright colours, terrific sharpness and details of the FG and cute group of tender :) creatures. I also like impressive BG. Bravo. Perfect, pictorial shot.

Fantastic photo with a great title. :) Probably the crocodiles talked about "let's open our mouth to help Peter in order to make a bombastic shot". :) This image really is. I mean bombastic. And You were brave to close them so much.
Congrats and tfs, regards from Hungary, László

Un trabajo impresionante Peter, que te pone en escena y te hace soñar con otras tierras. Originalidad ya que despiertas interés incluso sin verse los cuerpos de los reptiles.
