Can you see the creature in this photo?

Can you see the creature in this photo? He’s not completely hidden, but if you aren’t paying attention you may not notice him. I think he’s counting on that.

    It’s the eyeball that gives him away. If he closed his eyes, I would have had to hunt for him.

  2. adinparadise says:

    He’s certainly well camouflaged. 🙂

  3. pattisj says:

    He blends in awfully well with his surroundings. Not something I’d want to stumble onto!

  4. Yikes, what great camouflage. Have never been that close.

  5. Looks like a smiling log :).

  6. bulldog says:

    Yep … that hunting pose best described as the moving log…

    Nice picture, TBM! Yes, he is deceptively hidden. I remember reading a Willard Price novel when I was in school in which a crocodile egg hatches and it first sees our boy hero, and thinks he is the mother. I don’t know whether that is how it really happens, but that day I realized that crocodiles might not be that bad after all 🙂

      I think they are wonderful creatures as long as I’m not near them 🙂 It’s a little scary when you go on a boat ride and they say not to stick your hand outside of the boat or you may lose it. That makes an impression.

      • Vishy says:

        That is scary! But it is nice that we can take a boat ride in a place filled with crocodiles. I didn’t know that that was possible.

      • TBM says:

        We were in a decent size boat, but I saw some men fishing in a much smaller boat and I think I would be terrified the entire time.

  8. Eek – look at that eye!

  9. I see him! I don’t want to meet him!! I will just enjoy your picture!!!

  10. Novroz says:

    I saw him straight away, his eye gave away the cover. Great shot. How close are you to him?

  11. My, what creepy eyes you have, Mr. Crocodile.
    When I was a kid we lived on a small canal and sometimes alligators would come into the canal. One used to enjoy sunning himself in our back yard. If you approached too quickly, he would dash into the water lickity split.

    Oh my! I can certainly see him in the photo, but I would certainly have to watch my step. I wouldn’t want to be his/her lunch.
