My parents visited us this week and I decided to take them to the crocodile bank on East Coast Road near Chennai. The place is a rehab center and an effort to save the rare species of crocodiles.

This fellow looked at another crocodile with a clear intention to attack and gave me an opportunity to take this shot.

Equipment used:
Nikon N80, 300mm Nikor lens.

This crocodile was taking rest and I got an opportunity to click this picture at the Crocodile Bank.

While I was enjoying the view of the ocean, i suddenly noticed these two gentleman scnorkling. I would have also loved to do this, but the place did not offer any such facility for a tourist like me.
