I seem to have spent a lot of time with snakes recently, and I've developed a bit of a fascination with taking pictures of them! Here's a series of shots that I'm most proud of, but I still have a lot to learn!


1. Green Pit Viper

Wow some magnificent snake shots. I think you done a great job with the King Cobra. The darker image lends itself to the snake.

Agree with all the above. Amazing work, that really brings out the beauty in these creatures.
If I had to pick a fav would be the Green Pit Viper, but that is just my view on the Snakes beauty, as ALL your shots are equally amazing.
