Hi Horia,
Excellent close-up, it looks as if he was seeing how you would taste :-) Nice detail in the eye and nice use of a shallow DOF. It is very shallow but I think DOF is very subjective, the same shots with different depths of field can look equally as good. Excellent colours too, very nice shot.

Bellissimo primo piano, complimenti!

Good portrait of snake. DOF holds attention to the eyes which is great.

Buena e interesante toma la de esta culebra de agua.
Mis felicitaciones,
Un saludo
