    These pics were taken at night unstaged since we can't touch reptiles on roadways in Texas. They are insitu shots but I think they came out pretty decent. Let me know what you think.

    Thanks. I used my canon xsi with a sigma 105mm and a speedlite 430 exII. I'm still learning how to use my flash in manual so I think I did alright.

    Pretty nice work, especially considering you're still experimenting with your flash. I especially enjoyed the Diamondback. The narrow depth-of-field and tight focus on the snake's head worked out great in that shot!

    The flower is beautiful, but the photograph probably would've benefitted from an extra stop of exposure (at least 2/3 stops brighter might've done it)... it seems a tad bit too dark.
