I can't resist to show you in this nice but unsuccessful attempt of camouflage by this crocodile, I hope it makes you smile a little...ehehe.....A pic taken in Cachikaly reserve, near Kololi.I thinks that isn't useful to illustrate the characteristics of the species that everyone knows.


Non so resistere nel mostrarvi questo divertentissimo e mal riuscito tentativo di cammuffamento da parte di questo coccodrillo,spero che vi faccia sorridere un po'...ehehe.....fotografia scattata nella riserva di Cachikaly ,nei pressi di Kololi.Non sto ad illustrare le caratteristiche della specie che tutti conoscono.

Hello Luciano,
Your photo illustrates very nicely the ability of the crocodile to blend into it's surroundings. I can easily imagine an unsuspecting bird or some other critter walking within striking distance of it's large mouth.
Outstanding detail and beautiful natural colors. Thank you for sharing this eye catching image.

Hello Luciano
照的清晰 很突擊的鱷魚鏡頭
照的很有創意 也很漂亮
光線亮麗 整體都可以看的很清楚 尤其是它的半睜開的眼睛
構圖美麗 背景深遂

Shalom Lucinao,

Hello again

from the small thumb nail, I thought it was a little frog. To my surprise to see this crocodile hidden so well. excellent shot with so much details and I can see those teeth.


Hi Luciano,
"Can you see me?" crocodile is saying? I suppose.


Interesting scene and photo Luciano! Good composition, wonderful lighting and impressive sharpness!

Ciao Luciano,
Beautiful camouflage, but there was not enough ..
Very beautiful photo in colors sharpness and perfect details.
Best wishes,

Hi Luciano, I think this crocodile thought he/she had camouflaged himself/herself completely under the plants. He looks very sleepy.
Great natural colours and composition. I do not see this kind of presentation very often in TN. Thank for sharing
