    I would give you a more honest critique, but I can't look at the pictures again. At least not until I get over my snake phobia. I'll check back here in 15 years and try again.

    But seriously, after glancing over them they look pretty good. The last one is really eerie.

    TC your photos always impress me! great work and details on those snakes - I keep getting drawn to that bright red tongue in the second - great capture!
    Out of interest are these wild snakes or captive ones?

    Thanks for all the nice comments. I guess I should have added "Graphic" in the title.

    These are snakes in the wild, not captivity. Just got lucky with him eating the toad...Well, I think it's lucky. :)

    What sharpening technique do you use? Because i guess i dont know my 100mm macro that well because my shots with it are sharp, but never seem as sharp as yours...
