What a surprise you should have get when you see it on the beach!!! It should not be obvious to take a picture of so a mortal snake! It should be the reason why the focus is not so well done ;-)

Well done on the effort and composition.
If only it was clear and in focus.

Interesting shot .. however it is not sharp. I wish the POV had been slightly to one side so we could have seen the forking tongue ... you have a 300mm zoom so I dont think you were within striking range ... I initially thought that you photographed a snake charmer's cobra but it seems this was a wild one .. in that case, the POV is just fine, I would'nt be hopping around one of these guys unless the snake charmer is close at hand.
You seem to have the same issue that I am battling .. the "burnout" of the white parts of the subject. Cant help you with that yet ...

Great capture Vivian, well done on the composition. I don't think the image quality is there though, it looks like it is too big for its original number of pixels. But a very good effort. Thanks.

Hi Viv, I don't think I've seen one of these on TN. Scary!! It is a good composition, the sharpness isn't too good, but the interest of it gets the greenies from me. Thank you for showing us this Cobra, as I don't think I'd have been as close to it as you were.
