Found this Red Rat Snake crossing my trail in the everglades,
had to lay on the ground and use mother earth as my tripod.
distance was less than two feet.
and she co-operated nicely

Sharp exposure of a colorful subject. Surprised it would stay in one place with you that close. No suggestions for improvement.   Posted: 06/07/2020 16:33:29

Hi Richard, nice and clear on the eye which is the money maker. The gray surround compliments the colors of the snake to make it pop. Good work.   Posted: 06/14/2020 18:09:17

Hi Richard, (Brave Man) Happy you had good cooperation. Nice focus on head and eye. Also, I like the composition with the snake in the middle of the frame with blurred foreground and background. Very nice.   Posted: 06/22/2020 16:38:35
