I thought crocs ate children!
Aussie: Given half a chance they'll eat a man as well. From memory the last person taken by a croc in north Queensland was some guy checking his cray pots in the early morning. He must have been close to or in the water as they are very slow moving once they are out of water.
Ha Ha ha! This is a lovely picture, looks like the kids were having great fun, and you've captured a great shot. I love the expressions.

The brave young man rescued his sister. I hear the tick-tock, tick-tock too!
Aussie: Nah, I think he's trying to close the jaws.
Hhhehe..looks to be bit of a mouthful even for a crock.
Aussie: The last person taken by a croc was a guy checking his cray pots, so I think she would just be a snack.
They have fun, I can tell

fantastic Aussie
Aussie: Dad just smiled when I took it, but I wouldn't bet that you or Vintage would get the same reaction.
Great capture Aussie. I love it!
Oh what a lovely picture Aussie, it also has a great feel of the innocence of youth.

This is very sweet. I love the chivalrous little guy giving a hand.
Aussie: Or do you think he might be trying to close those jaws.

Great candid photo Aussie
Aussie: I tend to get away with these shots. The father did see me but just smiled as if to say 'oh how nice she wants my kids in the photo.' I can't say you or Zed would get the same reaction.
Great capture, are the kids life size?
Aussie: Think the croc is a bit more than life size but they still manage to kill and eat grown ups.
He's waiting and hoping those jaws will shut!! We know how little boys think about their sisters! Great photo, HC
Aussie: I think your correct, or he's saying come on get out it's my turn.

Don't be taken in by his welcome grin
He's imagining how well you'd fit within his skin!

Beautiful, crisp detail on this marvelous candid. The humour isn't lost on us, but, at the same time? That's one hell of a mouth! Scary. smile
Aussie: Yes and they do kill people. We don't get them this low down, gets too cold in the winter. Now stop laughing, 8 degrees celsius overnight is cold here.
lol, nice one Aussiesmile
