This is the Green Cat Snake or Green Cat-eyed Snake (Boiga cyanea).

Nice sharp closeup, but I think I would crop a little off the left, including the fake leaf.

This is a Bare-throated Tiger Heron.

I like this composition. It could be sharper on the eye.

The lizard is the Asian Water Dragon (Physignathus cocincinus).

Horia,

Very nice shot of a really beautiful color phase of Natrix.

Nice natural light shot. I like the way the reflections on the head contrast with the dark body.

Although the snake coming out of the frame works in some shots, in this case I think it would be better if you had chosen another color for the frame. The head gets lost in the black frame.

Do you not have any information on the critter?

This appears to be a Coffeesnake from the genus Ninia. It might be Ninia diademata. It isn't N. sebae.

This is an excellent photo, but it isn't a coachwhip, it is a Sonoran Gophersnake (Pituophis sayi affinis).

Excellent portrait of this neat little viper. It is a pity that the tounge isn't sharp, but otherwise I love the shot.

Great shot, but this lizard is an Anole (genus Anolis) rather than a gecko. I don't know what species live in the Dutch Antilles, but you could certainly ID it with that great shot of the extended dewlap.

That's an excellent shot. Swifts are extremely hard to photograph and you hardly ever see good photos.
It is a pity it wasn't turning so the light hit it's underside, but you have to take what you can get.

Graeme,

While this is certainly a great shot, like many of your others, it is not, in fact, an African Rock Python. It is a Boa Constrictor (Boa constrictor), a snake found from Mexico into South America.
