Amazing, Luc. You are formidable avec le camera. : )
Fantastic composition. Extreme clarity of details. Every scale stands out. Gorgeous colors. What a beautiful combination of oranges and greens. It looks so alert with the light reflecting in its eye. Superb job... again!

Beautiful composition of this snake Luc. It's very nice the way his head peers up over its coil. Great shot, well done.

This is one of the best photos of snakes I've ever seen.
First of all excellent compsition and very special POV.
The details are simply amazing. It looks as if the snake was made of metal.
The light is perfect as well.
I like it very much.
Very well done!

Its a nice shot Luc, great composition and details, very good work.

The detail is just incredible, a fantastic capture, well done.

Excellente photo Luc. Belle composition diagonale donnant du 'mouvement' à l'immobilité. Super netteté des détails et superbes couleurs.
Une autre belle réussite.
Non pas de nouvelles de Serge. Je communiquerai bientôt avec lui et toi pour qu'on s'organise une sortie à l'Île Bizard.

He looks like he would get a lot of miles on that tread. Superb image and detail! Thank you.

My Friend
I like the company you keep - Shady Lagies, Bandits and now snakes, and such a nicw one too. Great details on the scalesm and lovely colours and lighting. I tried a WS, just because I wanted a sllightly diierent POV.

Very striking pose and POV, Luc. Your snakes all looks so life like. Very sharp details and cath light. Lovely color. Really an impressive shot. Well done.
