amazing capture, TFS Ori
Again, you are giving me a rare pleasure in dedicating this fine capture of a Saharan Horned Viper to me and my colleague Bayram, he will also be quite happy to receive this dedication from you. Your viper looks ready to strike, its characteristic "horns" and strongly keeled body scales are finely detailed in this perfect reproduction. To make the strongly camouflaged snake more "visible" on the sand, I increased the contrast level slightly in my WS, hope you approve my friend.

I apparently missed your latest photos from Tunisia (and especially the reptiles) but i'm really glad i spotted this :)
It looks as though you came back with some great photos and gems and this is definitely on of them! I just love this full-body view of this gorgeous horned viper in its sandy natural habitat. I found the same species during my trip there, but only came back with a good headshot, so i'm glad you got such a great habits photo.
I really like the sharpness allover here and the great colors of both the snake and the sand + sky.
I do however feel that a slight brightening and increase in contrast might be good here, as Mehmet already mentioned. A very minor detail, though :)
Overall, a superb post from you, my friend!
Bravo and TFS

Hi Radek, a shot to be proud of indeed! Trully magnificent beauty! Amazingly beautiful capture taken from very effective low POV showing its horns well -i think this is the single species that its ladies have horns. haha..- I wonder if it produced some epidermal warning sounds while performing the sidewinding motion. May be you've observed this queen at least a while! I am jealous with this great image you sure that:)! Hope i could see its couisin (C.c. gasparetti)in Jordan and take some great shots like this!
TFS and also thanks a lot for this pleasant/joint dedication MF!
Have a nice weekend!

Jestem pod wrazeniem tej fotki, obiekt twojego zainteresowanie do bezpicznych nie nalezy i pewnie nie miales duzo czasu na zrobienie zdjecia. Pieknie uchwycona, ostrosc i kolory tez na wysokim poziomie.

eye to eye - only the brave ones would dare such a low point of view and close approach in front of a horned viper! My respect and congratulations for this first class reptile portrait taking a minimalized, well efficient view of the habitat perfectly so well into the frame!
With thanks, and best regards,
