Hello Mehmet,
A very unique shot not seen often in the wild, a snake with it's prey in it's mouth. It's neat being able to view this scene in his natural habitat. Nice capture!!

Hello Mehmet
An interesting moment to capture, and a very rare one as well. Good detail and exposure.
One wonders whether the snake will manage to eat the fish
