Wow! I can't believe that he didn't get a close-up of a crocodile while spending so much time in the water.

And yes, great images. I like getting that low perspective on the water like that.

edit to add:

He must have had his lens at or just above the waterline. I had my fingers wrapped under my camera body and barely touching the water to get as low as possible without using a housing and my perspective here still isn't quite as low as his...

...but I'm wasn't about to get in the water just for those extra few degrees.

There's crazy, and then there's...
Fantastic shots - great perspective, wonderful lighting.

I have done a couple of crazy things while shooting, but probably wouldn't go that far. I have to say that he did get the images that he was after, though at a big price.

'This worm was actually visible under the skin of my foot and would move at night. It became a game to find the worm in my foot each morning.'

This line kinda ruined it for me... ackkkk

has the dude never heard of a wet suit? That might have prevented a lot of the disease, geez. Of course you usually are more famous after your dead so maybe that is what he was really going after.
