Crocodile sticks to shallows

'More and better another day.' I hoped!  So here's another look at my Macknade wetland 'friend'.

It's a little better. But Saltwater Crocodile (Crocodylus porosus) still too far away - and today wouldn't get out of the shallows. We'll keep trying ...

Meantime, two Intermediate Egrets (Ardea intermedia) scratched up from a recent Tyto walk.

Wow! This time I can see a glint in the eye! - let alone count all the teeth! How far away were you and were you in the safety of the car?

Tyto Tony said...

Relax! Almost 35m away - and in car. Nice teeth this time, though across wider stretch of water.

Nice crock shot! The color on the teeth give it that extra menacing look.

Last straw too much for Double-barred Finch

Townsville Common Cons. Pk, track to Jacana hide, today. Flew off a second later with lighter load.
