This shot doesn’t quite do justice to the immense size of the , but I like it for the extra element- the ibis – in the background.

    John Key and Peter Dunne?

    Then again Key is too good humoured to be portrayed as a crocodile.

    Wasn’t JB Vorster. the loathsome Prime Minister of apartheid-era South Africa in the 1960s and ’70s known as the “Great Crocodile”?

    Nice photo Chthoniid, but it’s fair to say crocs are not one of my favourite critters… I assume you were using a very powerful lens. 8O

    Ha! My immediate thought was Key and Peters. And the croc really does look a bit like the PM. :)

    I don’t know- finely-honed predator that dominate the habitat he lives in, prey has little chance of surviving, skin thick enough to withstand most assaults :)

    I’m afraid JB Vorster was well before my time. And anyway, he’d be named after the Nile crocodile :P

    actually with a boat you can’t photograph above a focal length of about 300mm. The real trick is to have adept lookouts. And get close.
