Rachel, i am a snake fanatic and i know what it is like to get inspected by one. This is a great capture and you should be proud to have one in your pond, it means you have a little eco system that is working in your garden. I am green with envy.

Excellent shot!!!! The DOF works well - makes it look like he lunged at you. The face is so clear. Super shot ++. Viv

Superb shot, the campo round here is teeming with snakes, but they're all very timid and you're lucky to get within 12ft of one. To capture one (in the wild) in a pose like that is wonderful.

Stopped by again this morning...He makes me giggle with that inquisitive look. Smile Daenna

Perfect. Focus is spot on and the narrow dof works superbly.
