David Doubilet was scuba diving with his wife, Jennifer Hayes, in Gardens of the Queen National Park off the coast of Cuba. The couple — in both life and photography — had documented healthy reefs filled with fish, sharks, and crocodiles, so they went back 15 years later to see if anything had changed.
Hayes had her back to Doubilet when a giant American crocodile swam directly in between them. Doubilet made loud noises and fired a burst of flash-lit shots to let her know they were not alone. She turned around to find herself “face-to-snout” with an American crocodile. She says she didn’t feel threatened by this species at this time. She settled in to capture the moment, while her husband took a photograph of the experience.
