I have never captured a snake with my camera so far, Alexei. In addition to my aversion to these creatures, I never even saw a snake while looking for wild life!
You have captured yours with your usual professional ease and expertise. The sharpness is phenomenal.
Hope you are keeping well.

Interesting to read your note. It's true that nature is a lot more interesting where there are just a few humans around. You have been lucky to see this not venomous snake (somebody told me that if the eyes are round, they are not venomonous), even if on your picture it doesn't look so friendly..
As usual excellent sharpness and and interesting mix of light and shadow.
Thanks too to have visited my gallery, it's very kind.

I have not seen you around on the site for such a long time and while browsing through the gallery I came across the last photo you posted in June. I do understand that you do not always have the oppertunity to have internet access and that your work comes first.
A snake is not a subject that I am used to see in your gallery and that is the reason why this image special. The clarity of this photograph is just great with details beautifully seen, especially of the snake's scales and its beautiful eyes. I agree with Helmut that the light is indeed splendid. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
I hope to see another posting from you soon, but in the meantime I would like to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and may 2013 bring you all that you hope for.

Great detail here. The shadow works well as the snake is coming out. Great detail on the scales. What texture! I too, would love to know how long this guy is.
Hope all is well,
