Slithering Powerhouses @ Sunderbans

I was lucky to get a glimpse of these magnificient reptiles at Sunderbans. They just blend in with the banks and branches. Even after spotting a few (3 in total), by the time we reached near them, they made a quick splashing retreat to the waters. 
In the first picture, this is a very young crocodile basking in the morning winter sun. Look at the top of the picture, and you will see many small fishes. They are called mud-skippers, and they literally live on the land.. just to escape inside holes or water in case of any bird approaches.
In the second picture, I just got lucky to capture one croc as it dissappears under the water..
