    That is one evil snake, well captured.
    Hope there was some glass between you.

    I hate snakes. Especially when they look at me sideways with that funny grin on their mugs - don't forget I know these buggers, I come from MambaLand.

    nice one fen.

    I have a friend who owns a Mamba Seymour, but it's a bow. Same as the one that lit the Olympic flame in Barcelona.

    Nice picture Fen, though somehow it does not look as menacing as it should. I am still jealous; whenever I try to get pictures in a zoo the snakes are always asleep and/or the glass is so discoloured with algae that decent pictures are impossible. How and where did you get this one?

    There's a right mean looking critter................

    I just wonder if it'd look a lot meaner with a bit more saturation and contrast.

    It's an excellent picture, just as I like it, simple and clean and uncluttered and sharp...

    (I feel like I want to kiss it though, it looks so friendly...not a good plan.../img/wwwthreads/wink.gif)

    It was taken at London Zoo.

    Pretty much all the snakes and lizards were "up and about" so to speak.

    Good shot Fen! I like the way the snake fills the frame, and the background is soft and not distracting.

    Now remember folks, no snakes are evil. The have no evil intentions, they are only trying to survive, just like you and I. (Sorry, that was just the animal lover in me).

    I like it. Nicely in focus with the background blurred perfectly. Also works in horizontal!

    I want to like it Fen but it needs to be brought to life with a bit of PS tweaking :)


    Next time, shoot from the other side of the glass so it don't flatten the image :)
