Congratulations on being the first to present this Boa on TN. A wonderful shot with superb details and colors of his skin and face. It might be my imagination but he seems to have a smile on his face. I am amazed at how well the eye stands out even though the colors are similar to the skin. Thank you for posting the workshop to give us a good idea of the size of this snake.

Hello Ahmet, Very nice and lovely post of this first one in TN. Well done Ganesh
This is what I like about TN, every day I learn something new. A boa in Turkey!!, I would never have thought there were so many reptiles in Turkey until I joined this site.
Great capture, good composition and sharpness TFS.

How interesting to come across a Boa on your expedition!! 1 metre is long enough for me but I'm surprised at how thin it looks in the Workshop. However, both captures are very interesting and well taken showing great details of its skin pattern and colours. A very interesting note too!
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

Great to see a new species on TN. A lucky meeting. Beautiful details in very clear light and colours. Nice composition.
Bu günler dalgıncayım, az daha bunu da kaçırıyordum, bir de Abidin hoca ile bana hediye ettiğini okuyunca bir tuhaf oldum, sağolasın arkadaşım. Bu sakin, efendi tabiatlı kum boğasını bir kez daha görmekten ayrıca memnun oldum , en beğendiğim, hoşlandığım yılanlarımızdandır, her iki resmi de tanıtıcı karakterleri bolca içeriyor. Pek bilinmeyen bir yönünü de ben ekleyeyim; sakin görüp pek kurcalamaya, kızdırmaya gelmez, bir defasında bir resim çekme seansında yardımcımın parmak ucunu neredeyse koparıyordu, ciddi bir ısırık yarası açan birey de 45 cm kadardı...

a great photo of this Sand Boa - yet another first for TN!
Excellent sharpness and detail.
Very good low POV.
yılanlarla pek aram yok ama son günlerde her yerde yılan efsaneleri dinlemeye başladım. Boyu 1-1,5 metre olan tombul ve "boynuzlu" yılan hikayeleri torosların değişik köylerinden geliyor. Efsanemidir değilmidir ondan da emin değilim gerçi... Siz de duydunuz mu?

I believe you are correct.We haven't seen this Boa yet on TN.This is a fine capture of it too.
You must have got quite close to light and photograph it with such clarity.
Its a very nice dedication to your two professors.
I'm sure they will be pleased with it.

Ahmed Karatash, Assalamualaikum. Unusual post from you and unusual time to spot a boa after midnight. Good shot and focus with the aid of light. The framing is good with the blurring tail to signify the length. Congratulations for another TN first and TFS. Have a nice week ahead and best regards. Jusni
