Great shot! What an interesting pattern. How common are these snakes? What do they eat?

Hi Ali, well this fellow certainly camouflages well, must be hard to see at times, as he has the same colours as the ground around him. It makes me shiver looking at him! Good shot and interesting too. Thank you, please keep him over there!

This is very nice, I think the picture is a little too green. Try to change the colours. Thanks, Ori

Is this picture from wild?If yes is it a night shot? The yellow stripes on the snake are interesting for me.Also the eye..Have a good weekend Ali

Hi Ali. That snake has mean eyes, and he does have a good camouflage on that ground. Good composition and POV. The focus is a bit soft, and there is too much green. Did you take the picture indoors through glass? In some digital cameras there is an adjustment you can make when you are shooting under tungsten light. If you leave it on the "sunlight", things come out very green. I made a little workshop for you. Hope you like it. TFS. : )
