|I have no idea how this will do, but it was fun to put together. Snake courtesy of the animal shelter, and I don't actually know if it's a boa or python. Focus is sharpest on top of the snake's head and I know I'll get dinged for that, but I liked this pose much better than the sharper pictures I had for an album cover. This was shot without a flash through glass; I got inspired when I saw the red/yellow cast to it and decided to play that up. Hoping to at least get a 5 out of it!
