Hi Achim.
Very interesting shot and pictured subject. Great details and sharpness of the image. May be contrast should be improved. My best regards and TFS.

Snakes frighten me :-(!!
I can imagine the degree of difficulty involved in shooting underwater creatures from a boat. The refraction or whatever might also play a role in this kind of photography.
This is a valiant effort in my opinion. One gets a fairly good impression of this sea reptile.

Hi Achim.Beautiful composition and color tones.Beautiful shot.Thanks for sharing.Well Done.TFS. Greetings

Hi Achim,
The right timing to get this shot. Very nice pov and well composed. Sharpness and exposure are great. The water here is really clean and the sands are pure white. TFS

Hallo Achim,
oh wow, also da geh ich nicht schwimmen ;-).
Interessante Aufnahme, waer super wenn du bischen mehr Info gegeben hattest, sind die Dinger giftig. Kontrast haett bischen besser sein koennen aber im grossen ganzen eine gute Aufnahme.

Hello Achim

A very good capture of this water snake.A species not often seen here on TN.Well composed in the frame .Great POV .TFS


That's an interesting photo. It is a seasnake, not a "watersnake". Watersnakes are harmless while seasnakes are dangerously venomous. Of course they almost never bite humans because they are very shy and live in the ocean.
I would love to know what species of seasnake this is. I don't think I have ever seen this species before.
