    Nice detail John

  • Thanks Steve. It was a great snake to photograph. Made all the easier by being behind glass and posing in the right light!

    An amazingly clear, bright and colourful shot John! Although this is about as close as I would like to get to a real one thank you haha.

  • Thanks for the comment & the Feature in the Olympus & Four Thirds Group.
    Like you I am amazingly brave when animals like this are caged and behind glass!
