[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The best way to shoot a snake imho is when a short-toed eagle is eating it in mid-air (tho I humbly admit there is great snake pictures on here). this is the only bird i took pictures of in a week on Chios. Great for orchids, not so much for birds..got to lesvos for that ;)
