very good composition
Hello JFK! Very original shot. Interesting picture. Good luck!
That can be a scarry situation seeing a snake moving in the water near you. A good capture of the moving snake and of the surrounding. The subject is well framed. Well done, have a nice day.
I used to live on Niue,an island near Fiji,and I remember these snakes. We didn't know that they were poisonous then and we used to pick them up and carry them around.
They have very small mouths and their fangs are far back so they can't bite very easily and are not considered dangerous,although their venom is one of the most toxic.
Thanks for sharing this.

I must congratulate you for this shot!
I personally don't think this is underexposed at all and i know how difficult it is to shoot a subject in the water.
Further more, i love all the colors and the splendid "S" shape of the snake's body swimming.
You should be very careful with these fellows - although they are very docile, as Steve said, they may have a very toxic venom. Take pictures of them, watch them all you want, just don't do anything to scare them :)
Bravo and TFS
