Wow, Nur... This shot sure has a lot of drama!
We have an expression that says, " Your eyes are bigger than your stomach" when you take more food than you can eat. But for this snake, it should be, " Your stomach is bigger than your mouth!"
That must be quite a feat... to swallow a prey that much bigger than your head. Great capture of all this action. The details are very sharp and the colors are well saturated. Fantastic POV and composition.
TFS. : )

This certainly depicts the saying "your all eyes are bigger than your belly ".
A great capture with no more details Necessary.
What is he trying to eat? Jim

He's just eating the lizard. It won't be difficult. It is just normal for snakes to eat preys much bigger than them. It would be good to remove "trying" from your note, or best to explain that snakes are specially evolved in order to be able to do that.
Nice pic.

anazing pic, TFS Ori

Is he going to swallow it whole????? this is amazing!
