A couple of weeks ago my brother and sister-in-law came down and brought some snakes. The plan was to do a practice session in snake photography.
Let us start by saying that I don't have the right lighting equipment. It is clearly something I need to invest in if I want to do any type of indoor photography. I also have to invest in an auto focus macro lens.
Another thing I learned is that snakes don't really stop moving.
As a result of the combination, most of the pictures were only partially in focus.
My sister-in-law could tell you all about these snakes, for the moment a snake is pretty much a snake. If it is a viper, I can tell you I wouldn't be this close.

The sun came out briefly. The colors were really surprising.
Daisy was unimpressed.

Who are you looking at? I would like this a lot more with a larger depth of field.
I have had an interest in photography since the time I was a young boy going to take photos with my father. In high school I purchased a Nikon FE2 and grew to love it. Today I still take pictures, though not as often as I used to. I'd rather get one decent shot than shoot dozens of pictures hoping for a good one. If you see anything that interests you, let me know. Most of my pictures are available.
