[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I posted the same picture on trekearth, but thought I post it again on Treknature because of the subject. I just cropped it a bit.
This shot was taken in the wild. The snake was very concentrated on her prize, so I could crawl around the stone and just take that picture from about 1 meter away.

Hi Pierre!

Congratulations for that very well captured picture. It shows us the real side of nature: good for the snake, bad for the lizard. You were at the right moment at the right place...

Kind regards

Hola Pierre,
excelente captura,
buena macro y detalles...
tonos magníficos,

wow, what timing and great find. nice focus, lucky you being able to get so close to a feeding snake, it's rare for me to even see a snake let alone one feeding, I saw a snake this past weekend and that was the first time in a good 7 years since my last snake sighting

Hi Pierre,
fantastic shot, great observed and captured, excellent focus, composition, interesting background.
I will post workshop with some different light and colours. Hope You like it.

Hi Pierre,
It's a great catch for both of you. POV and pose you captured are very good. TFS

good catch of the subject , Reached at right time to get a very nice picture if this.

Great shot! You have captured an action filled moment. Sharply focussed and good pov. But I feel it wud have been a terrific picture if the background were not so bright! But that can be easily fixed in photoshop. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Pierre,

I like this shot of nature at work in its rawest way.


amazing capture, TFS Ori
