Found this little guy wrapped around a stick in a pond at a friends house. The snake is only about three inces long. Just a little guy, he can't be more than a few days old.

Althought I usually like your use of a short depth of field, I think I would like to see the entire snake in focus in this photo, even tho it brings attention to the head. Other than that, quite striking, I like the saturation of the colors and the detail in the obviously very small snake. Good shot.

as Ron would say...."Wicked..." This is a fanstastic shot. I personally love the little (and big guys). Always wanted one when I was younger (Ball Python)...Mom wouldnt allow it though... :-(
The vivd colors in all of your photos amaze me. That's part of what makes your gallery so great...the other being your eye for a great shot. ; )

Excellent capture of a cute little fellow, and great composition for a desktop. Although personally I'd flip it horizontally ;-)

I love this shot. The clarity of the foreground is great. I like the detail on the snake's head and the composition is good too.

Putting your pictures in my favorites is the highest honor I can give you. If I do not get to your pictures as soon as you post them, I apologize. I try. Also if I do not respond for awhile it doesn't mean I'm ignoring you, it just means I'm really tied up with life. Bene lava!!
