Great shot, very nicely capturing this reptile.
Well composed picture.
Great moment to capture if its not often seen. Looking right at you adds interest. Like the way the water is just moving from the sides of him showing movement, colour and detail good, though here a poloriser would have helped the image to take the glare off the water.
Great image with notes.
very odd. I have seen many slow worms, but never saw one swimming. It is great to see this picture. Did it swim a long distance?

Ouch...although not a snake fancier, I like the way you have captured the menace in his eyes..Perhaps that is just the way he is... but what adds to the mystery is that he is partially buried into the water. A good lesson all around and very well taken.

Surely is the lesser brother of south america anaconda! he, he :)
Nice close-up very well done, you can notice taht is not a serpent but a lizzard. Excellent and concise note accompanied your image.

Nice shot of this lizard, with good composition and great details. I like very much the texture of the water.
Best regards, have a nice weekend, MF.
BTW: Did you receive the shots of the gomphus I sent to you?

I missed this one - excellent shot of this slow worm. I have never seen one, so I am quite envious. Great action shot.

A wonderful capture from your trip to Montenegro in 2004, Radomir.
Your caption startled me at first glance; however, your note quelled all doubts.
The details and colours on this lizard you captured in water are exquisite. Surprised to realise that it has no legs and slithers like a snake.
Thanks for sharing this picture and the valuable info on it through your note.

Splendid shot of this lizard. Very neat and sharp image with nice colours and fine focus. The sheen on its body is excellently captured and the intense eyes are just gorgeous and scary. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

I like the moment, the way it is watching at you. The composition is very good. Never seen an Anguis swiming like an Anaconda... Very original

Thought there is really an anaconda from Europe :), really unique creature, several times I saw a legless lizard but never see them swimming like this. Really great close up photo with nice eye contact from this beautiful model, love the detail of its scale also

Excellent portrait with eye contact. I was also fooled into thinking that this was a snake not seeing any feet. The smooth water surface provides a fine backdrop.

Well composed headshot, excellent POV, with good detail & exposure.
I like the bit of reflection I see, and the title reels em' in nicely :)

ahah amusant titre on pourrait presque y croire. Image intéressante dans sa composition, bonne diagonale et couleurs. La Dof est légèrement défayante sur la tête.
