Great details, super picture very cool. Thanks for sharing.

Good to see your great images once again, Chi.
I guess you were busy with something else since I did not see you in the past one month I have rejoined TN after a break of two months.
Your pictures are a class apart as this very beautiful macro of a python's face exhibits.
It is a pleasure to look at your work once again.
TFS and bye.

Hello Chi

Splendid portrait of tis very beautiful python.
And also, judging by the colros of its eye, he's ready to shead his skin...so great timing also :)
I really like the details and textures on its scales.
Very nice lighting and lovely colors and tones.

Bravo and TFS

Excellent close up with very good sharpness, focus and lighting.
The details in the flakes are amazing.
Suitable framing and background.
The opaque eye should surely be a symptom of an imminent skin change.
Nice catch.
Greetings... Ricardo
