A real beauty you captured here Jan. Wonderful colours on the snake, very sharp and great dof. I really like the way it is moving both up and down the tree at the same time. Great note too.

Beautiful view of the this gorgeous snake. The composition emphasizes nicely its arboreal natures and the ease with which it travels thought the trees.

Hi jan, Yet another super catch! Seeing your photographs from krugerpark I must say you had a very very rewarding stay there. You caught the essence of Krugerpark in flying colors. To me, this is Krugerpark, not just big five, every snakes, birds etc. TFS! T

prachtige capture, hele goede compositie, uitstekend in beeld gebracht. Jullie Sud Afrikaner moet toch wel op de hoede blijven met het nemen van foto's. Voor je het weet ben je het aas. Goed werk,

Hey Jan Hendrik this is a beaut. Great moment and well captured. Quick response. The other members have said all the good stuff already so I will ask the question - what if you cropped some of the scene on the right? I am one who is not scared of cropping and quite like long or tall narrow images. Cheers, Rob

Great image and note. The fact that the snake is on a complete vertical angle on the tree is amazing to me!

Amazing the way the snake grips the tree bark, well done for capturing it. I like the shallow DOF which splits the photo in half vertically.

Hi Jan Hendrik,
Took another walk in your Kruger 'garden' and choose this one
'cause I like it very much contentwise. Of course I thought this must be the venomous tree take. Read about it in a note from Paul(pvs). I have to study ''n Volledige gids tot die slange van Suider-Afrika', I guess.
And of course as always in your portfolio images the aesthetic criteria are all checked.

I took a look today at your first posts and i found this amazing beauty! ;)
What a terrific snake shot and what an fantastic pose! I guess your quick action here if worth praising!
The details here are impeccable and the colors and very beautiful. I particularly like the wondeful pattern on the snake's body, slowly fading towards that wipped tail.
Bravo and TFS
