Hello Ahmet

A very well focused shot of this serpent.Snakes can be very difficult to shoot.You have managed it well.Nice detail and textures and well saturated colours.You have caught this snake in the classic defensive pose.TFS


Ahmet merhaba , güzel bir türün güzel bir fotoğrafı , eline sağlık .

Gerçekten güzel bir yılan fotoğrafı. Eline sağlık.

Hello Ahmet,
This is a beautiful capture of a nice specie. A lower POV could have been nice too but I like to see the texture of its body. It also has a camouflages' color :) The only "snakes" we have in Quebec are mostly "grass snake” and I don't see them often. I like them and I wish that I could have the chance to see more of them.

You managed well with exposure and details in a nice composition. TFS this interesting animal,

Selam Ahmet, Bu fotoyu yeni fark ettim. Bunun modestus olduğundan nerden eminsin? Gel şunu düzeltelim. Foto güzel. On birşey dediğim yok. Tür konusunda bana uygun gelmedi. Bana lokalitesini, saymışsan dorsalia sayısı ile baş bölgesi detayları lazım. MSN den halledelim bu işi. Eline sağlık.
