Hello Luis,
I am presently in Nicaragua visiting my eldest daughter, but will be back in the states tomorrow to visit my youngest daughter who lives in Oklahoma. I have not had the opportunity to get on a computer much this week, but wanted to tell you how much I like your beautiful viper photo.
The focus is very sharp allowing us to view it's unique features in excellent detail. I love the way it is all curled up on the branch and it's colors are gorgeous. You achieved wonderful DOF and the exposure is just right. The clean blurred BG is a real bonus to a top quality image. Well done!!

Outstanding Luis , excellent sharpness and BG a beautiful viper.

Thanks for sharing.
