    Hi, here are some photos I took. Can you give me any constructive criticism? (is that what the c+c I see here stands for?)
    They're kind of crappy quality because they're from a 2mp Coolpix. :p But is there anything that could be better? (I'm sure there is tons, I mean, the question is what. :p)
    I hope I get a nice camera soon.:er:
    :)grumpy::grumpy::grumpy::grumpy:...I really love this smiley. :D)

    I saw that type of insect in #2 kill a dragon fly its own size. Didnt know they did that.
    Actually these are quite good imo, the focus is sharp and lighting good and interesting subjects.
    Keep them coming

    Wow, thanks guys! :)
    I know, #2 scared me when I saw it, so I took a picture. :p It's eating a moth, I believe. Aren't they called robber flies or something?

    I really want a new camera. I love wildlife photography.

    Wow, I do like those snakes of yours! Small as they are (they're still more "worms" than snakes, heehee ;) ), they are very sharp in those photos. I am not too fond of the direct flash, but I understand that was all you had, and that flash did help you get those sharp photos, so there! The last is good with the snake's tongue out. Very nice POV (point of view - DOF is depth of field, and cc is comments&critique, by the way).

    So I guess 3 and 4 show one and the same snake, and the one on Photo 1 is a different one? What snakes are they? (And where in Turkey do you live?)

    Sorry. :p Don't see why not? They're beautiful! And they've got dry skin, two eyes, same organs as us (excluding a couple)...No reason to hate them. :)

    Its not the skin, the eyes, or the organs that are a concern... its the fangs.

    Haha yeah, they are teeny. :) I let both of those go, eventually (native here, don't worry). I have a ball python, too.
    Yeah, the lighting could have been better, I'll remember that next time. That actually never occurred to me, so thanks! Thanks also for the definitions.

    Yep! 3 and 4 are a grass snake, and 1 is a small dice snake. I live in Istanbul. :)

    I don't hate snakes. I used to watch those discovery channel shows all the time or animal planet but lately i've just been a little creeped out about snakes. Don't know why though. Keep having crazy dreams of them ehhh
