That's called Karma.  You're not suppose to get that close to wildlife, no laws needed, just a little common sense.  (you had ripples on the water you were so close, jeez!)

Me.  They are aggressive, and territorial.  Not all wildlife are timid

Aussie crocs are pretty dangerous, but fortunately they only seem to eat overseas tourists. The locals know to stay clear of them.

Maybe the croc thought the drone was a low flying bird. Must have a disappointing lunch for him.

Hello there kyalami. Good day and thank you for sharing this article link that you have came upon. Just a reminder that wildlife like crocodiles are part of our natural environment and I'm sure they're not familiar to the drones that is why they react aggressively when they notice it. Thank you and please fly safe always.

Hi Gary,

I was testing the 2 links I put up this morning and both are working for me. I have no idea why they should not work for you. But if you copy the URL address and past it in your browser, it would definitely work.

Cheers
Tony

Here is a better link and has commentary by the pilot. The one up top on MSN never stops waiting to play for me. I guess that's somehow my fault by the downvote. What a loser he is.
