H! Photo Challenge: Hiding

This is my first time joining Frizztext’s “A-Z Archive” photo challenge.  Here is my interpretation for the letter H: Hiding.  We saw this crocodile along the Chobe River in Botswana.  Not only was he hard to spot since he blended in with the grass, I thought it was cute that his head was behind the little green weed, like he was hiding.

    That is really cute! He looks like he’s grinning 😉

  2. Haha, ‘cute’ and ‘crocodile’ in the same sentence, didn’t expect that 😉 his tail is impressive though!

      🙂 I know it is hard to see a crocodile as cute, but I think he is. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t want to walk up to him and pet him. Admiring him from a distance is as brave as I’ll get.

    tell him, whisper in his ears, the little green weed is not big enough!
    thank you for joining our “A-Z Archive”!

    What a great picture!!! I love it! Kind of hard to hide in that environment, though!!! 🙂

  6. Carl V. says:

    Definitely would not want to play peek-a-boo with him. 😉

  7. I love these guys! Great image! 🙂

  8. Caroline says:

    Not the kind of animal I’d want to meet on my walks. 🙂

  9. A master of disguise – don´t think I would have spotted him if you hadn´t pointed him out 😉

    Cute. I like the weed hiding him. 🙂 I don’t know about your little dog, but our bigger little dog definitely thinks he can hide behind a little twig like that, too. He is smaller than an croc, though.

    • TBM says:

      I would love to see your dog hiding. Animals are funny. Miles doesn’t try to hide at all. He’s always out trying to get attention from anything that moves. Our cat will hide or at least try to.

      • pagesofjulia says:

        Yea, they’re a riot. He gets down in the freshly mowed, 2-in-tall grass and flattens himself and we just laugh… I’ll see if I can get a picture for you someday but I’m not the photog you are 🙂

      • TBM says:

        Atticus, our cat, will do that when he is “hunting.” Then he wiggles his butt and I laugh and he gets upset because I ruined his chances. Even though, he really doesn’t have a chance. I would love to see some photos of your little guy!

    Perfect photo for Hiding! 😀 The croco looks like he s smiling “He he, stupid humans won’t see me behind the green weed!” 😉

  12. niasunset says:

    He is sleeping dear TBM… 🙂 I couldn’t have taken his picture… You did great. Thank you, with my love, nia

  13. niasunset says:

    You also mean, nothing could stay hidden… 🙂 Philosophical touches there is as if in this photograph… or an irony by mention the title… 🙂

  14. Jo Bryant says:

    cute and deadly…what a combo

  15. Fergiemoto says:

    Awesome! He probably thinks he is being really smart by hiding behind that weed! Great shot for the challenge.

    I try to convince myself they are cute but …


  19. He almost looks fake! I have to say, I’ve never seen such a shiny looking croc in Australia!

    • TBM says:

      This was the first time I’ve seen crocodiles in the wild…I’ve only seen them in the zoos. He was in the morning sun so that may be why he looks shiny.

  20. Oh dear, those scales are scary!

  21. Robyn says:

    Awesome photo! I love crocodiles and alligators! They are just such cool creatures.

  22. 2e0mca says:

    Plenty of Hide there for some shoes and handbags 😉 Not sure who he’s waiting for behind that grass! Nice shot.

  23. Kristina says:

    yaikes! Aren’t they dangerous even out of water? Great picture! Animals are incredible in their ability to camouflage themselves well!

    • TBM says:

      I don’t know if they are dangerous out of the water…I didn’t stick around to find out. But my guess would be that yes they are. So many animals have wonderful camouflage.

    “If I can’t see you, you can’t see me” eh?
