[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I posted the same picture on trekearth, but thought I post it again on Treknature because of the subject. I just cropped it a bit.
This shot was taken in the wild. The snake was very concentrated on her prize, so I could crawl around the stone and just take that picture from about 1 meter away.

Hi Pierre!

Congratulations for that very well captured picture. It shows us the real side of nature: good for the snake, bad for the lizard. You were at the right moment at the right place...

Kind regards

Markus

Hola Pierre,
excelente captura,
buena macro y detalles...
tonos magníficos,
saludos

wow, what timing and great find. nice focus, lucky you being able to get so close to a feeding snake, it's rare for me to even see a snake let alone one feeding, I saw a snake this past weekend and that was the first time in a good 7 years since my last snake sighting

Hi Pierre,
fantastic shot, great observed and captured, excellent focus, composition, interesting background.
I will post workshop with some different light and colours. Hope You like it.
cheers

Hi Pierre,
It's a great catch for both of you. POV and pose you captured are very good. TFS
Greetings,

Hi,

Great shot! You have captured an action filled moment. Sharply focussed and good pov. But I feel it wud have been a terrific picture if the background were not so bright! But that can be easily fixed in photoshop. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Pierre,

I like this shot of nature at work in its rawest way.

Matt

amazing capture, TFS Ori
