you are a man to watch, Giorgos, your picture collection is really building up nicely and it allows me to learn more about the Greek fauna and flora. I like the portrait of this "Balkan-Zornnatter". It is high in color with the direct sunlight . Thanks for presenting it.
La tête est bien nette, et la lumière rasante donne une ambiance particulière à ta photo.
nice capture, tfs
