Amazing situation you have captured here. Sharpness and DOF are very nice. I do wish you had included just a little more of the snake. BTW, what was the outcome of this encounter?

great moment captured there!!! great expressions and the focus/dof is great! great picture.. i'm scared to ask how long the frog was on the outside of the snakes mouth. =D

Hello tsotsito,
Award winning picture with catchy title. Captured in superb details with contrasting colors. Good for advertising. Well Done!

Hi Tsotsito!

Ok, how on earth did you capture this? This is wonderful. Love the smile and the eyes of the snake too, I think he knew they looked funny :)
Thank you very much for sharing!
Welcome to TN, I wish you to have good times here!

Best regards,

A perfect composition and a funny situation tsotsito, the focus, lighting and the BG are almost ideal, however some of your critiquers are wrong, that head does not belong to a snake but to a legless lizard. TFS

Hello Tsotsito,
a wonderful capture and scene. You had the luck to 'meet' one of the rare moments with a camera ready to hand. The composition of the picture is also attractive. Perhaps, some adjustments would be advantageous. Therefore, I tried a workshop and I hope that you will like the result.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Tsotsito,
Wow, your first picture in TN, and it will make waves! First, these are interesting subjects, the European glass lizard Pseudopus apodus and the Tree frog Hyla arborea. Then the action! You did an excellent job with the composition, the light, the background, the short shutter time. The colors look slightly oversaturated to me, but this is a matter of screen quality and taste. WELCOME ABOARD TN, Tsotsito!
My best regards

Hi Tsotsito
You were very lucky to have the opportunity to see something like this, beautiful!
Nice composition, nice colors, good BG! Maybe you could light it up with Photoshop!
