Another from Riverside. Taken through glass and with no flash photography allowed. Quite a challenge in the dimly lit reptile exhibit.
This is very good Amy, superb detail in the snakes skin, well done.
You have some good shots in your portfolio.

Very nice composition and crop excellent image!
A superb close up Amy, and the detail in the skin is good and sharp.Excellent Capture,click.
Great close up, super detail. click.
Makes me shudder just looking at it, what type is it? click
A beautifully detailed image Amy.
Good shot, Amy. nice crop. Do you know its lenght?
I really like the way you cropped this one Amy. I have a pet snake, and never seem to get anything this interesting. I will have to try something like this. Great shot.
Very nice shot indeed. I love the scale patterns on this snake. The only thing I can say is that maybe it would be nicer if the head was nearer the front, at the bottom of the picture rather than back and at the top?
It's a shame you couldn't use flash to bring out the eye a bit more.
Still, a fantastic shot under the conditions. I only have a few poor reptile shots where I've had the chance to take them.
Snake abstract! A clever shot Amy - looks as if it could be a rattlesnake?
Excellent scaly detail, makes a great image. Well done Amy.
Gorgeous rattler! I like the way there's nothing in the shot but the snake. As for taking shots in reptile houses, I know how hard that is, I haven't managed a good shot in one yet (despite a LOT of trying!)
Gorgeous, but looking at this image it's hard to believe how "silky" those scales feel. (But I havn't tried it on a "rattler").
Thanks everyone for the encouraging comments, and especially to you John, for the constructive comments.
This guy didn't stay close to the glass for long and I only got 2 decent shots of him....his head was a bit more centrally located in the original shot, but I cropped rather heavily in order to have nothing but the snake in the frame.
My biggest dissapointment was that I couldn't get that wonderful rattle in the frame with his head. Oh, well, there will be other trips to the zoo
This is a great shot, agree with Brian's comment - a snake abstract! Love the different colours & textures of the scales, excellent stuff.
