I took this photo while on a wildlife boat cruise in Palo Verde National Park. We saw probably 40 or 50 crocodiles in the wild on that trip, which took about 90 minutes or so. At one point, the boat operator stopped and held out some chicken parts to feed one of the crocodiles.
I did not use a telephoto for this photo. In fact, I had the opposite problem. In some of my photos the crocodile jumped up right out of the frame where my camera was pointing. We were safely within a boat that was large enough for about 20 people, but we could have reached out and touched the crocodile if we had been so foolish.
Needless to say, the river where this photo was taken is in a different area than the river where we were doing the river tubing trip.
Tomorrow I will show the runner up of a photo that I considered for the theme of "empty." It is completely different.
