I love the snake photos on this site, mostly because I admire anyone willing to get near enough to snap the picture. I don't mind snakes, but the problem is that they tend to blend so well you don't see them until you're almost upon them! Such is the case, it seems, with your snake. Obviously you saw him in plenty of time! Nice photo especially with the tip of his tongue poking out. He looks about ready to strike! Sharp details and camouflage bg helps with the suspense!

Hi Ilias,
Nice shot of this T.fallax. A vicious looking snake. Sharp focus and well composed image. Very well done and tfs.

Very well presented image of this nocturnal species of snake.
Am happy it is not highly poisonous to humans.
Very well focused too.
Great work. And thanks for sharing.
Mario from Canada with greetings.
