Great moments - especially with getting to know the story behind!


One of my luckiest shots is this quite unspectacular shot of a croc.

I was on a boat, trying to get some good kingfisher pics in the mangroves of costa rica and suddenly there were crocodiles instead of birds. Everywhere.

We were approaching a small island and the guide was smiling after i noticed there was this old and huuuuge croc swimming about 1 meter next to our boat and he told me to switch lenses. "You wont need the big one now!"

I did not (want to) believe him and did not switch so yeah... what makes it "lucky" is the distance to the croc. The picture was taken @135mm and is not cropped - so I think you can imagine how close I was.

The guy later on decided to leave the boat and show me how slow crocodiles are in the mud etc. pp....


I hope my pic is worthy of this thread. My english writing skills clearly aren't.
