Smiling Assassin


An American saltwater crocodile at Jardines de la Reina, Cuba. I wanted to make an image that had both strong eye contact and visible teeth to bring out the character and personality of this animal. I slowly and cautiously approached it maintaining strong eye contact and light fin movements to avoid stirring up the silt. The crocodile remained motionless with just it’s yellow periscope like eye staring straight back at me, it felt like stand off, who would falter first? I managed to take about 3 frames before it turned away, slowly submerged and vanished off into the green water.
