[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The fresh water crocodile (Crocodylus johnstoni)is much smaller that the salt water crocodile. Males can reach about 3 metres and have a long narrow snout making them less of a threat to people, however, if disturbed and threatened they can give a good bite. They are only to be found in northern Australia.
I spotted this one resting on a dead tree in the river whilst I was walking beside the Katherine River a few kilometres down river from the town.
Taken with plenty of zoom and then cropped.

Hellow Ian,
Well spotted and nice capture of this croc between the dead trees.I can imagine once he goes down he will be comppletely unseen given the darkish colour of the water.Interesting reflections on the water surface, well done.
