[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Never smile at a crocodile, for you don't know what they are thinking of. These are Nepali crocs, and extremely dangerous. They eat villagers every chance they get. They are found in the Terai the flat, swampy part of Nepal, that borders India. This is a Singapore zoo shot, as I missed them on my previous canoe ride down their river in Nepal. The croc is floating in a huge tank with glass walls. Maybe if you see them, then they are too close! (I will post the information about them later, I forgot it in my room).

Great mirror effect Gloria. Is this one really taken through the glass - if so it is very well done. I would prefer some more space in front of the croc and if possible lighten up the dark background a little. Apart from that a very nice capture - I especially like that mirror.

Did you forget the notes or the croc in your room? I try very hard not smile at anything that considders me as a nice meal.

Thanks for posting

Very nice shot Goria. These crocs I haven't seen before. The point of view is striking looks like you were in the water with them. Thanx for sharing.

Gloria this is really good. I think one of your best. Do you know waht would make this look really mean? If you cropped it very long and posted it as an LP. That would be tasty!

Very good work and good note. thanks for posting.
