A monster lurks beneath the surface of the waters of a lazy river. The crocodile lies in wait for some unsuspecting victim to wander too close to the water's edge. A few bubbles might disturb the water, but this massive carnivorous reptile remains perfectly still, like a tooth filled trap just waiting to spring upon it's next meal.
In this scene, you get to see this frightening animal up close. It sits in shallow water among small stones and aquatic plants. The tooth filled snout points in your direction and it focuses its reptilian gaze upon you.
Crocs and gators are creatures that have always fascinated me. The species have barely changed since the time of the dinosaurs. Alligators generally don't live the waters of the Metro Atlanta area, but one was found recently in the Chattahoochee river only a few miles from me which inspired me to create a few artworks depicting these frightening creatures. A couple of hours drive South of where I live though, they start to be rather common in the lakes and rivers. Crocodiles, on the other hand, are only found at the southern tip of Florida in the U.S.
