Day 279 – Keeping Watch   6 comments

These birds are keeping a careful eye on us as we coast by on the South Alligator River in Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory. They probably learned to keep a watchful eye considering all the crocs in the river. Despite the name of the river, it was actually named for all the crocodiles. It just so happens that the explorer that named the river couldn’t tell a crocodile from an alligator.

  1. Lovely!

  2. I like the photo, but this post also made me check on the differences between crocodiles and alligators, so it was a useful education as well. Personally, I wouldn’t trust any of them. Thanks.

  3. Great shot Mike! Nice detail; the panoramic format works well with this shot too! Cheers!

  4. Crocodiles, alligators… regardless the differences, they are nasty predators. I would be afraid to be anywhere near the river. Though, I’m glad to see you were brave enough to venture out and shoot these beautiful looking birds/ducks? 🙂

  5. Hi. I hope you don’t mind, I also nominated you to ‘The Versatile Blogger’ Award in this post http://wp.me/p1IrpE-Bt. Regards.

  6. Great colours in the picture
