What a capture! Remarkable! The focus, lighting and tones are superb! Gotta give a 10 on this. I do feel sorry for the little one, but that is nature's way. :(

wildlife photos to me are always worth more points, but this one is a great example of the patience and luck you had to get this shot

6 - Oh, nasty. Another once in a lifetime shot... well, probably... depends how long you wait and the local 'population', I guess. Good capture. Something odd going on around his jaw area with the darker colors, but could be my monitor.. apologies if so.

I have voted all the entries and done my first pass adjusting: at this point, this is one of two 10's I have awarded, though I expect there will be a few more. This is just an outstanding capture, in the pure sense of the word: WHAT a moment! My only quibble is that you didn't dodge up the staring eye a little bit, I'd love to have it pop a tad and draw my attention. In any event, this is one of those images that makes you go "Holy Moley!" for the sheer con tent of it, and I'm rewarding it commensurately.

Do they eat eachother? I never knew that crocs and aligators would do such a thing even if there are starving.
