stunning shot of deadly viper,great moment catch,well done
don't be too hard on the shepard. with his work he could get killed by the snake. it's easy for us who don't have to work in close proximity to dangerous animals to want to protect them but it's another thing to ask people to accept the risk as part of their daily job.
nice focus good DOF nice composition good colors

Outstanding capture! Great POV and DOF and it looks frightening.
Disregard of creatures is always something that is discouraging.

I have a short break after field studies in Spala Landscape park and before trip to Macedonia so there is some time for TN ;>
This portrait is really splendid! It looks that you were very close to this viper - the snake looks very dangerous :)
It is really nice to see this picture also because I had no luck to see it when I was in Romania :)
Have a nice evening and TFS,

Excellent portrait of this neat little viper. It is a pity that the tounge isn't sharp, but otherwise I love the shot.

Well you caught this one at the perfect moment. No I wouldn't like to stand on it or even be as close as what you were. Great image with fine detail. The snake does have lovely patterns which can be seen well. It is so sad when people are so ignorant.

Nothing wrong with the title, but you also gould have called it "Ssssssssssssss....Back of" ore somaething like that :)
Great capture with the tongue downwards, wich is'nt a very good sign for those who are to near.
Sharpness, clarity and DOF are excellent and the details and natural envoirement are wonderful.
Thanks for sharing.
Have a great weekend.
Kindest regards, Harry
