Suffice to say when I took my eyes off the lens (I had shifted my attention to the birds), I found myself staring into the baleful eyes of this fellow here from only four feet away. Now it could be my imagination, but I got the distinct impression that he was none too pleased to have his afternoon nap disturbed by a *camera-toting human* as one of my friends would have it. Look at the change from a relaxed open-mouthed stance to one of grim closed-mouth look. *shudder*

Oh dear! Where is this? That looks so scary
At Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary 🙂 We were in a boat, the boatman took us real close and kept insisting it was okay. 😮
OMG !! Quite scary Shail…I would’ve screamed my lungs out !
My son was also rather worried. My God. He took us real close and I was the one at the end of the boat closest to the crockie! 😮 Indrani also has written about a similar experience at the same place!
Oh dear…those boat men need to take some lessons…seriously !
oh those teeth…they are damn scary! :O
I was looking through the zoom lens, so they appeared real close, but was not aware that I myself was getting closer! the boatman was like, “Nothing will happen, we know all about these crocs and their habits.” 😮
A ‘toran’ of teeth
Shail did greet
She had the guts
To take these shots
A ‘dontist’s delight are those buckteeth!

Ah, memories from my time in Florida! Now, I never came face-to-face with a gator but did see them on the side of the road. Then there were the news stories of gators in pools.
