These romantic herps are found next to the Courtenay River where it flows into the salt water delta here in Courtenay/Comox British Columbia Canada. Standing still as a tree I was able take a whole series of photos. I learned that these colourful rascals enjoy romance more than the average little mammal. I blush to report the scandal of two gals enjoying the company of one dashing fellow dressed in red highlights. A good time was had by all.Wink

It looks like very stong light giving you stong shadows.
I see there more than one snake there...
Very nice colours and tones...
The comp is ok with top snake but I feel that towards the bottom of image it loses it strenth.
May be it the focal point as your eyes are draw to the top of image.
The way to get round that may be to get a little lower so you are more eye to eye.
I not sure I could do that as I not good with snakes.
Not many around my home land...
Not sure I can help you more...

You are correct about getting down to snake-eye level. Not to make excuses, but there was a path behind me and people walking by. Also if I were to reach down and arrange blades of grass the love lorn snakes would have run for cover. I had to make like a tree and cause people to detour around me.

You went to some effort to help me improve and I do appreciate that. Getting lower to snake level is really a point well taken. I was very lucky to get black and yellow snake earlier March 5th. He was in a pocket in the grass out of the cold wind so I got lower but was limited there as well. Turned out strong though. PhotoTonyG.blogspotDotCom
Thanks for your comments. A work in progress. TG

Thank you Jill and Anand. Just got into 'Digital' slr last June after a long absence from Minolta 35mm film. Glad I got back to photography. I can't believe all the things I was not seeing every day. If you know someone who is bored with life, [not that I was], just get them going with a DSLR. What fun! eh? TG
