A fine portrait of a female Smooth Snake set in a classic composition to show the head with superb sharpness and colours from a nice lateral POV.
I wish you and Cathy a successful trip to the Middle East and I hope you come back with lots of interesting pics!

Wonderful image taken with great details, lovely colors, excellent DOF and POV. Well done!
this shot is so beautiful - and also makes me a little sad that we don't "talk" to each other for a longer time now. I wish you a fantastic time, I'm with you in my thoughts. It will be a perfect trip, I wish you many wonderful experiences - and make a lot of shots for us here on TN ;-) Take care my friend ...

Yandan da gayet alımlı görünüyor. Bu türü Elaphe'ler gibi uzun boylu zannediyordum. Evet Akdeniz'den kayıt yokmuş Baran'ın doçentlik tezinden (Türkiye Yılanlarının Taks. rev. ve coğ. dağılışları) baktım. Afyon'a en yakın lokalite Türkmen Dağı'nda Sabuncupınar Köyü imiş (Kütahya-Eskişehir arası). Karelerinizi özleyeceğiz. Herpeto-tatilinizin verimli geçmesi dileğiyle.
Bayram sana da Cathy e de iyi yolculuklar..iyi gezmeler. sicaklar bastirmistir orda. bol bol su icmeyi ihmal etme. arabani da dikkatli sur.. hersey gonlunuzce olsun. Iyi yolcukluklar... kazasiz belasiz...
beautiful portrait of this Snake, i love the diagonal composition, the very sharp details on his head and the superb green Bg
the whole image is splendid
Good luck for your trip and your studies
Have a good night

Merhaba MF Prof. Bayram,
such a stunning capture again. you have given the clarity and sharpness at its best, and add element of suspense by giving the head jutting out and the eye contact so true.
Details and features well documented.
Well shown capture of this scaly and slippery creature.

I've been away from the site for the most part Bayram.
Profile says you're leaving back in in April, but this is June?
I too left a bit angry, but it was admittedly a mistake.
Sometimes we all need to step back and take that long look..
Brings to mind that old Beatle song "Hello Goodbye" ;)
You remember, it goes like this:
"You say yes, I say no.
You say stop and I say go go go, oh no.
You say goodbye and I say hello
I dont know why you say goodbye, I say hello"
Great shot BTW :)

I feel bad that you're not here right now, Big Bro, but I do hope you're achieving what you set out to do.
I'm still at a loss, I saw so much suffering that my sister went through, and am still stunned by her death.
This is a lovely shot, the head is in perfect focus!
PS: Thanks for your kind words in my previous post, and come back soon, Big Bro!
