Large American Crocodile

This month's picture comes from Jeremy Badger who was hoping for a close encounter with a spectacular bird and instead came away with a memorable encounter with one of the most impressive crocodilians.

Jeremy describes the encounter: "I snapped this Photo on a river near Tarcoles, Costa Rica. This is the dominant male of a group that can be seen near a bridge that is frequented by tourists to feed them. This croc was about ten or eleven feet in length but I wasn't trying to get close enough to get my tape out. I shot this as he was swimming towards our boat and about five feet away. What a rush. My wife and I were on a search for Scarlet Macaws and only saw a few, however none were close enough to get great pictures of. I gained a greater appreciation for these pinnacle predators."



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.
