Playing With Fire
Photo By Antonio Badilla

  • Title: Playing With Fire
  • State/Province/Region:
  • Country: Costa Rica
  • Nearest Area: Carara
  • Nearest Town: Pigres
  • Brief Directions: From San José any tourist agency will direct you to the Tárcoles River, approximately 2 in a half hours from the capital city.
  • Notes: Most tourists do not take the boat for the adventure and, instead, stand above the river on a bridge on the highway to photograph large crocodiles and to feed them.
  • Best Season: Summer
  • Description: This picture was shot at the Tárcoles River in Costa Rica a few years ago. Don José, as he is popularly known, steps out of a boat with lots of scared tourists and waits for the crocodile to get out of the water and eat a chicken. It's a scary moment because the tourists in the boat are very close to the action. It was hard for me to hold the camera steady so I could take a good shot. Not only is there movement on the boat, but I was "literally" shaking as I took the picture. I did not want to become the crocodile's next meal!

    Very nice set of "Arches" Stephen. Wasn't sure, but thought someone said one of the famous landmarks fell? Really enjoyed the "Double Windows" when there!
