[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The green tree python looks amazingly similar to another snake, the green emerald tree boa, Boa canina, which is native to South America. This is an example of convergence between two different species in remote but similar habitats.

Very nice capture, Fernando!
This is a splendid snake, indeed. Excellent sharpness and good POV. However i posted a Workshop where i adjusted levels and contrast...it needed the modifications a bit.
Bravo for the shot and TFS

Hi Fernando

Excellent capture of a good pose, I love the water beads on the snake. I've checked out Horia'a workshop and think it helps the snake to stand out from the BG, well done.

Hi Fernando,
that's marvelous, the python is beautiful in this pose. Most I love the drops, like little diamonds all around, thanks
