STILL they are not endangered species but for they will soon be for the fear of human beings. People Kill them. Its the high time to educate people about snake so that they can be preserved otherwise our future generation will see them only in pictures, they will miss the MAGNIFICENT HOOD of this beautiful species.

This is an amazing looking snake. Many people have fears of snakes, wherever it comes from. Unfortunately.

BRITCHIE. Thanks.. Cobras are aggressive by nature. But they are not deadly as human beings. They don't destroy mother nature like we do.

Yes, I spotted this one in your portfolio. Composition-wise it's good, the snake is peering into the frame (good crop), and the angle on the hood and eyes works well. But it's quite a bit less sharp than yesterday's, there's camera movement. Quite simply 1/50 second was way too slow for you to be able to hand-hold steadily at 95mm.

You are using shutter priority, which is a sensible start. But as I put on yesterday's:

Quote:When you have that lens on the camera, think of setting no slower than 1/125, and increase speed as you zoom in on a subject.

It's something to bear in mind if you get an opportunity like this again - or indeed whenever you have that lens on the camera! By this point in the zoom you needed to be up to around 1/160 second.

It can be sharpened a little, so it looks better, but its not as good as it would be with the faster shutter.

The light is very low here, and also the previous shots.

If this is not cropped, you were reasonably close, so you have the option of using flash, unless its a problem for the snakes. Actually using Auto mode with flash might wwork.

Mod uploaded, which is sharpened, contrast and white balance adjusted.

This is a very much better composition in terms of NH record. The detail of the animal is shown rather better. However,CIT is a bit soft. Almost certainly movement due to the low shutter speed. It is a good image, but you are promoting this series as totally animal related rather than pictorial and it is thus record. As such, you must aim for critical sharpness.
