Hi Rob, quite agree with you about them being cute. Great POV with good detail and love that tongue.

I really like this shot, Robert. Amazing capture to freeze the tongue as you were able to do. I agree that the snake appears fairly old, given the dullness of his eye in a very sharp image.

Yes Sir! This is very good. Even though your depth-of-field is not what you wished it is very good. The subject is sharp and the background has a nice blur. Very impressive.

Well done Robert!
The POV on this one had me grinning. Very clever and innovative. "He who glides with snakes" shall be your new name for this shoot.
Wonderful detail, color, lighing and eye contact, thank you for a fine posting.

Waouh ! Impressionnante composition photographique pour ce reptile qui tire la langue. Jolies couleurs, bon point de vue et très bonne netteté.
Wonderful, well captured with the tongue !
CUTE?? It's very good, but cute?
I like your POV Robert. It is very sharp and the details are excellent. I never knew they smelt, do most snakes smell? And you can handle it, can you? A very interesting posting, thank you.

Well Sir Robert, this sure is a mouthwatering picture - I am saliviating all over my desk just being green - this is VERY nice, I have tried nailing their tongues before, but to no avail. A lovely mug shot - TFS

Brilliant pov. An amazing close up of this amazing creature, whose obviously had a few extreme situations in it's life.
Tremendous detail, and I love the WS aswell. A couple of great images Robert, even if not fun and fluffy.
Thanks for posting.

Fantastic capture Robert! Perfect timing..Razor sharp..No nits, wish it was mine! Very well done. Great work!!
Wow, brilliant shot Rob, just brilliant. And just in case you didn't get it, I'm very impressed with thi shot.
I think the composition is just great and I can appreciate the patience you've shown to get such a great shot (with the tongue out). I love the POV and the DOF, on your belly were you?
The workshop shot is also excellent, probably worthy of a post on its own. TFS

very good portrait:) sharp and vivid. tsf..
Very interesting shot. Love the details. How far away were you from him. Timing was perfect too.. caught him with his tongue out :D
the background actually gives you an idea of place.. it doesn't distract at all.
ps The family says hi :D

Excellent capture Robert. The fences at the background a bit distracting but I saw them 10 seconds after I opened the photo. My eyes were fixed to the snake. Magnificent details.
Very well done.

Marvellous close-up. One can see all the details. The photo is very bright, sharp and clear and I like the unusual perspective. This really makes the snake very much alive.
Well done and thanks for sharing.

OMG! I have a lump in my throat! Not my favorite of creatures but still prefer them to spiders. Amazing color and sharp details what an intriguing pov! Half way expect it to turn its head this way. TFS

Only just seen this and being a snake lover have been fascinated by it. Very sharp capture and great to get the tongue at full extension. TFS
