Nicely caught! Fine composition.

Great shot. It looks like the snake would have been easy to miss at it slithered around the tree. You have a good eye.

HansHB said...

A great shot and very good in B&W too!

Prem said...

Yay! me afraid of any crawling living things... but great photo!

Wonderful capture of texture here, Michael. The roughness of the background highlights the slithering of the smooth snake. He has a brilliant pattern that the light shows off to a tee!

Perfect in B&W. My plaudits.

Great shot! Love the textures in your photo!
Have a nice weekend:)

I agree with Julie, only can't say is as eloquently. Light, composition, textures, and yeah, subject... you got it all here, Michael.

Snakes are both frightening and beautiful. You captured both aspects.

Not one of my favorite critters, but a terrific capture as always, Michael! Hope you're enjoying a great weekend.

What an awesome capture. Hope you kept your distance and used a good telephoto lens. It almost looks like there is another snake popping its head out of the opening in the lower tree trunk. Fabulous photography. genie
