Oh Graham you snake, have you been crawling through the grass again? Look at you, you've got yourself all dirty and green! You need some punishment, Y* just because I Like it. Magnificent picture! (wish it was mine).

Graham Hobbs on September 14, 2010

thanks cristal1995 - wildlife was my first big passion in photography, I only got into landscape later - so I can't resist the occasional return to older ways :)

Hi Sunpixx - our paths haven't crossed for a long time now - great to hear from you, and thanks very much for that :)

best regards to both

Dear Graham, this is an exceptionel shot and you have an exceptionel gallery. I take it to my favorites. Cheers, Karl

Graham Hobbs on September 20, 2010

thanks Igor - much appreciated :)

the YS honours me Mario - thank-you

You are very kind Karl - i think this little fellow was so busy trying to figure me out that he stayed put long enough to get a precise focus on, which makes all the difference at that magnification :)

best regards to all

Graham Hobbs on October 1, 2010

thanks Eric - I wouldn't have done it in Africa ;D

much appreciated Guy - I don't know why, but I never get round to checking the subject without a prompt :)

very best regards to both

I love this shot. Great macro - did you have to stake (snake?) the area out for awhile before you caught him?

best, lew

Hello Graham

You know i am always afraid of snakes even in pictures. It gives me an awful sensation. But here you give out a wonderful image.

I do not wish to imagine how you did this encounter but it is really wonderful capture. The colors and perfect timing and the totality of the image is a masterpiece.

Good luck in the NPC.

Sincerely, Francine
