Got my eye on you...

By DunDiggin  
This crocodile came right up against the glass as I took its picture in Loro Parque zoo in Tenerife.

Glad it was thick glass.

Great capture. When I first saw it I thought, Oh my God he's brave. I still think that glass or no glass.

Nice one. I assume it wasn't so very hungry, then?

Good grief, that's close.
An excellent capture, particularly through glass. Annette

Thanks for the comments everyone. It was a little unnerving, even with the glass. Especially since, while I was leaning against the glass to get this shot, another croc drifted up to the glass where my hand was, so my hand and its jaws were only an inch apart - and it moved so stealthily that I only noticed it when I'd taken this shot!!!

I was using a rubber lens shade on my Finepix S5000 - couldn't have got the shot without it.
