Crocodile Close-up

Photo and caption by Jennifer Summar

I was visiting an animal park in Jamaica and shot this photo of this huge crocodile. It was shot with a Nikon D700 and a 90mm Macro Lens. This is not zoomed in. I was this close to the croc. Thankfully there was a fence between us. As I was looking through the lens, the park guide had signaled for the croc to come over. My camera lens was up close to the fence, so as to capture the shot between the fence bars. That's when the croc snapped at me! Just after I snapped him! The force bumped the camera against my eye socket. I'm okay though, and so is this big fella.

Location: Ocho Rios, Jamaica
