Hi Aussie shooter.
Lovely shots, great mood to the lighting. Well done.
The first shot looks so much like the generic dragon as drawn / imagined, never really thought about it but I guess it is obvious, these being such a prehistoric looking animal.

Cheers, Graham.

Thanks all. Eyes on any animal are great but they are especially intense on crocs. TBH though I do work with crocs in captivity so these are NOT animals in the wild. Means I can get really close

Hey Aussie Shooter, those are really nice shots. I always liked those eye shots. This one I took of a gator last month. This shot probably was kind of risky - this guy was 10 feet in front of me and there was nothing between us but air. If he wanted to - he could have run up and grabbed me. These guys can easily outrun a human. I'm getting too old for this crap. I think it's time for me to start shooting squirrels.

Here's one of a giant croc that was lounging on the banks of the Mara River in Kenya.

Here's one I took last year with the 100-400mm II on the 5DSR. It was either in the River Cam or Malaysia, probably the latter.
