Great shot Indigo. Probably the best macro shot I've seen in a while. Great composition. Sorry to hear about your Green Ribbon. I feel your pain.

Go team G2!

We've found several snakes under wood in the yard recently. This was the smallest I'd ever seen though. I kept it in a little glass aquarium for a day so that the kids could see it.
I had a really hard time coming up with a way to shoot him. I have some shots of the kids holding him, and he looks tiny even in their hands. It's amazing how fast he is ... I had to drape a laundry basket in black fabric and place it under him. I don't need a baby snake loose in the bedroom!
I have other shots with better composition, but this was the only one where I caught his tongue out. He came out to the edge of the front flower and was reaching toward my camera as if he wanted to say hello.

Macro lens +4, bounced flash, f 2.5, 1/160, ISO 200 (thus the noise in the background), levels adjusted slightly

Congrats Indigo! It´s a brilliant shot, it was a shame that you didn´t get a ribbon... Green ribbon!
God job.
Take care & Have fun

This is a great shot, I'm glad to see it did well, but I would have handed you the ribbon.

first off, I hate snakes....but anyway, yours suffers from the same thing my entry does...it seems the middle part of the body is in focus but the head is slightly out of focus

It certainly is. Good catch. Could be a little lighter and a little sharper. I'd crop off the flower/leaf above the snake.

Excellent capture, I think the background flower at the top is a little distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/01/2003 10:04:42 AM
wow, that IS tiny. Gorgeous shot...I'm especially impressed at how you managed to make the creature look so clear with a dark background. a 10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/01/2003 01:24:55 AM
I think there is to much background. I wish you had cropped it so only the snake and some of the flower would be showing. Background a little distracting. 4

Beautiful shot... the lighting and composition here are excellent... the fork in the tonge being captured here really seals up this photo as a strong one :) I gave this photo a 10 based on the quality of the shot and the overall impact. I did not subtract any points for, what seems to me to be, a careless title. I'm sorta funny about that. Anything that you present WITH your photo becomes part of your overall presentation, including title, border/framing. I take particular interest in titling my own photos. To me, that is a major part of the presentation :)

Great shot...

Oh my gosh, that is the smallest snake I have ever seen. Excellent shot. I'm amazed at the little forked tongue and the position of the little guy. I don't care for snakes but this really is a 10 in my book.

Excellently done. I really like this one...

Awesome! Is that a brown snake or a ringneck snake? It's kind of hard to tell. Was that shot posed or did you find him that way? Posed I'm guesing.
Great either way. I love photos with snakes as the subject.

Interesting subject, nice colours, very effective dof. Not quite sure about your composition though. 9

Woo hoo! A 10! Very cool shot -- I've been waiting to see something that jumps out at me, and this certainly does. Kudos!

WOW-- best macro Ive seen yet-- that is one small snake!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/30/2003 12:47:56 PM
I am so amazed that you found such a small snake...... I like it because it is an animal on a flower, that ISN'T an INSECT!!!!!!! 7

Great subject, but the grainy gray background is a bit distracting.
