ABC WEDNESDAY " LETTER C "


Today is ABC Wednesday and the letter is " C ". "C " stands for Crocodile.
I found this amazing Crocodile mounted on the wall at the Outback Restaurant in Nevada.
Aha I exclaimed...my C post is right above my head. So I took my trusty camera out of my purse and got my post for ABC Wednesday.

Crocodile vitually is the best way to view it. Great idea for the c.

Great capture and equally great "C"!

Cheers, Klaus

(P.S.: just one thing - it's a good ole gator... ;), though I believe his name was Charlie)

leslie said...

Great idea for today! I don't think I'd like to get that close to a live one, though. lol

ellen b said...

Glad he was the mounted variety since he was above your head! Good eye!

Wanda said...

Nice work

Good detail.

Great pictures. Really like your site.
Take care

That's cool. I haven't seen a croc at the Outback. I'll take a look the next time I go...maybe I'm too busy eating. I love the Outback. Its home base is in our area, you know.

Bill said...

Glad it was not from a close encounter :)

I suspect I will not be in the bay area for an interview any time soon, but it is possible I will be going to LA. If you happen to be in that area, let me know!

To eat under the hungry look of a crocodile! LOL

crocodiles certainly are awesome creatures - don't think i've ever seen a live one!

AphotoAday said...

I think it would be a bit un-nerving to have that croc right above my head -- dead and stuffed, or not...

Hey Photo. Sue, do you remember the alligators in the old Stienhart Aquarium... Wonder if there will be any in the new place -- it should be opening soon...

Best regards, as always, Don and Kitty

Kjerstis Hjørne said...

very Cool C-Choice. But a little creepy too.

Kerri said...

Great shot for C!

Texas Travelers said...

Great C. I carry my little point and shoot in my pocket for just such emergencies as collecting a "C".

Well done and thanks for the visit,

Troy and Martha

Faye Pekas said...

Wonderful texture here. An interesting but soooo dangerous animal.

Merisi said...

And in comes the lady,
with the crocodile ... er ... bag ...
no ... crocodile picture! Amazing creature. ;-)

The grape image is outstanding,
congratulations on that capture!

P.S.:
Would you believe that I was thinking of you when I realized you had left a comment on my blog while I had gone looking for your link?
Good morning from Vienna, I say! Good night to California! :-)

I saw a baby cayman croc at a water-park in cheshire recently - I still have fond memories of california because of the friendship of our hosts and the loveliness of catalina - but I still cringe when I think about palm springs.

Abraham Lincoln said...

Wow. I guess that would be different. I am not sure I would want to sit there but would probably ask for a seat without a bigger predator than me over my head. LOL

joan said...

Great C photo. Really good detail too.

kml said...

I was glad to read he was stuffed - that is a very close up shot for an alive one.

I am glad I am not the only one who carries my camera around everywhere I go!

Very imaginative Photowannabe! - Dave

tr3nta said...

I love the texture of it!!!

Sara said...

Yep, it's always smart to have the camera wherever we go...and you took great advantage of the opportunity.
