Up Close and

Good morning all.
On a recent trip to Mexico some locals said that a family of crocs were living wild in the mangrove near a local taco bar.
So off we went and found this 8' female, who is clearly used to being fed scraps from the taco bar.

I am about 3' away which is as close as I dare, however with a 17-55 lens I knew I needed to be close. The sun light was intense and I used a fill in flash to highlight the shadow.

The big male was in the water to my right and I had to keep one eye on him and well as this smiling lady.

Thanks for looking.
Kindest Regards

An informative pre-narrative and a rather frightening image, glad you captured it and not me.
