Merhaba Bayram dostum,
A fine capture of a young Ottoman's Viper. The accompanying Ladybird is a nice way to get some idea of its size!
Excellent technical quality, excellent note and I like the WS that shows the head in fine detail.
Thanks and all the best,

Lovely image of this young snake.
The ladybird does give a good sense of scale and the detail is very good.
Good composition and a nice OOF background.
Great capture and TFS

I love both this and the WS shot! They are both terrific and present this cute, little fellow so well.
The details you managed to get are impeccable and the two POVs presented here are excellent. The comparison to the ladybug's size is also a welcomed one and indeed offers a great sense of scale.
Excellent snake shots and presentation of this wonderful species...i hope to be able to take a few similar ones myself in my studies this year :)
Have a great weekend! Bravo and TFS
This shot is excellent to compare the size of the viper. Such an interesting moment, Bayram, very good sharpness and pretty colours.
I was waiting some minutes to see what will happen with the ladybug ;-) But nothing ... tell me, do vipers eat bugs - and did this one catch the poor ladybug?
But you told us - his ladybug-friend - so I think I know the result ;-)
I wish you a wonderful weekend - the have the first day with sunshine, yippy, I'm happy.

Beautiful photo of this young snake. Great idea to see the comparing ladybug. Good sharpness, details, natural colours and composition.
haha:) Bayram hocam, ne kadar da ürkütücü olsalar yine de çok güzel sunuyor ve sevdiriyorsunuz. Gerçekten uğur böcüğü ile pek yakışmışlar. Ayrı bir mana kazanmış. Hem de jüvenilin boyutunu anlamak açısından da eğitici bir kare. Ustaca planlanmış bir sunum. Bilgiler de harika. Isırıldığınızı duymuştum. Şerbetli lakabı bile duydum sizin için:) Ne risk altında çalıştığınızı ve tutkunuzu anlamak için muhteşem bir çalışma olmuş. Elinize sağlık hocam. Saygılarımla.

The Viper and the Ladybird - this could make a nice fable! A very fine capture with good focus on both. Lovely light and colours too.
TFS and enjoy your weekend, Ulla

Fine shot of this baby viper, the ladybig is a great scale comparison. Good sharpness and composition.
Merhaba sevgili arkadaşım,
Two very interesting captures of this baby Ottoman Viper, apparently quite, with a good camouflage for soil and rocks. The ladybug gives well the scale of this viper. I suggest to the viper to not eat the ladybug... From my accidental experience, it is the most disgusting thing I ever eat! Of course not dangerous as a viper kiss ;)

Merhaba MF Prof. Bayram,
lively capture...I wander in the difficulties in spotting this snake as it camouflaged is so well done, as a gift by nature.
Very hard to discern and differentiate with the pattwrned rock surface.
Nice capture in real life view.
