ooohh.....A snake in the grass, remind you of anybody mate....LOL
I'd be tempted to crop the shot so as just to concentrate the composition on the head. Don't if this would be possible though mate....Still gets a big click from me, because lets face it, it's not something you see everyday either in the wild or on EPZ.

Good shot, only ever seen a dead one not a live one in the wild. Thanks for sharing.

I'd like to see if that A3 was critically sharp on the eye, Ian?

I keep looking.

A cracking shot from a, with that lens, hopefully safe distance.
Stunning detail.

Nice shot of this beautiful lady.. Although a little cranky at the time, you captured her well. All the best.

You get a click from me just for getting that close... I have a major snake phobia! That said I can appreciate its beauty and it is a nice close I gotta go shudder... :o)

Do you think I should tell people that I often shoot with an 18-55mm hand held, nose to nose... Sorts the men from the boys..! LOL!

Yeah, but be careful who you call a boy, or I'll have you hand holding the sigmonster, Brett!
