Do Not Disturb
This picture was taken by Balazs Bazus at the Zoologico Nacional, near the Carretera Masaya-Managua, in Nicaragua using a Nikon F100 with a 35-70/2.8 D Nikkor and SB-26 flash (Fuji Velvia 50 slide film). Not only is it a striking portrait of the head of an American Crocodile (where the characteristic "Roman nose" of this species is easily visible), but Balazs was able to catch the crocodile doing a behaviour that we rarely see - sleeping. Even if it's only a light sleep.
Would you like to enter your best photograph as a potential Pic of the Month? Send it to me and I'll include the best here each month. Each year I run a competition where the best photograph each year is awarded an Ilfochrome print. This year there will be a special prize to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of this website. The only criteria for submitting a photograph is this: it must capture the attention.
