Nile Valley Crocodile, Uganda

Crocs are a dime a dozen in the Uganda section of the White Nile in Murchison Falls National Park. They lay all over each other basking in the sun on the banks. A telephoto lens comes in handy if you want to get a good closeup like in this shot but apart from that it [...]
