Very well done, Mary-Ella. The detail and complementary background are wonderful.
I still hate snakes. I think it has something to do with a college dorm room, the morning after, and a 15' python missing from the local zoo.

Very nice, Mary-Ella. Love the color of the background against the snake. Excellent.

Thanks for your feedback everyone - I'm pleased you like (?) my snake, lol... I'm not snake phobic (though I must confess, I would not be photographing them were they not behind a nice thick piece of glass), and I've been amazed and fascinated at the beauty to be found at the Reptile House.

Beautiful shot, Mary-Ella! Crystal clear, amazing that it's through glass! Interesting tip about the camera for that type of situation too...
