Photographer's Note

In January this year Britain received a massive amount of rain. According to the Guardian, it was the wettest winter month in over 200 years and three times wetter than average.

In many parks, lawns and commons large water puddles appeared and it was in one of those temporary ponds in Bushy Park that I spotted this half-submerged lichen-covered willow branch.

I'm almost embarrassed to admit that it sent my heart racing when I saw it in the corner of my eye. It's an important feature of our peripheral vision to warn us against real or perceived danger and an image of a huge reptile must be well embedded in our subconscious. Fortunately on this occasion the "crocodile" turned out to be completely harmless! :-)
