For many months, I’d often hear Yogi exclaim “Look at this!!!” And he proceeded to show me Solar Whisper‘s Facebook page of photographs taken by operator David White along the Daintree River in our part of the world of Tropical North Queensland. They were, of course, extraordinary wildlife images and videos of crocodiles – crocodile behaviour, of alpha male crocodiles, mommy crocodiles with her incredibly cute babies and of birds and other wildlife found in close proximity to his boat along the famous Daintree River in the Wet Tropics. I got in touch with David and after several false starts, we finally made it to join him on his wonderful hourly boat trips.
