coiled

By notabimbo
Another from Riverside. Taken through glass and with no flash photography allowed. Quite a challenge in the dimly lit reptile exhibit.

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?

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 Smile

This is a great shot, agree with Brian's comment - a snake abstract! Love the different colours & textures of the scales, excellent stuff.
