Hi Jens, i agree with Ole i don't like snake's, but in this picture you have to look into his eyes!! You've captured this one very well!!! Well done. Best Regards, Toziena

Jens, I like this picture a lot. The shallow DOF works particularly well to emphasis the head and eyes of the snake. The curve of the snake helps the composition to guide viewers focus to the head. Congratulations for such a good shot.
