Oh my, his mouth looks like he could still enjoy a desert, you sure he wasn't eyeing you up for that? Great timing on this great beast. It is like you have a special light into his mouth. Lovley clarity and composition. Well done.

Hi Vic,I think I would have preferred a 600mm lens,just to be that little bit further away:)Those teeth look mean.

You caught this well Vic, more interesting with the mouth open, good detail on the croc's back, I find the the top brightness a little distracting although I appreciate that the dynamic range from bright sunlight to the shade of the tree is great. May I suggest a crop from the top down to just above the croc's back that will make the format panoramic and stronger IMOP.

Hi Vic ^^
Ohlala !!! Frightenning creature T_T but the picture is perfect :-)
