Hi Luis,
A very impressive image!
It's vey good your POV, light and all the sharp details got on the snake.
The textures and colours on the head are amazing.
I like very much the composition made with the leave and the reptile.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Superb job here with the capture of face-to-face encounter. Close eye contact makes this one very special. I also like the flash exposure that has provided striking contrast and detail. Very well done. Regards,

Hello Luis,

What a suprising apparition :-) I like this close-up and the contrast between the snake's color and the green leaf... 2 things:

- Maybe more space at the right of the head improve the composition;

- I would like to read more notes about that snake...

Good picture and TFS,
