My one shot that came out ok from a shoot of this boa constructor at Burgers Zoo. Had to take these shots trough some thick glass filled with fingerprints and in little light that made me use shutter speeds I normally don't use shooting out of the hand. Next time I will go again at a quieter moment, so I don't get nudged all the time when preparing for a shot, and with the tripod for these lesser light situations.
I had in mind to make a bigger post on this snake as I made quite some shots from this snake, too bad all others had quite some traces of movement in them. The shooting trough glass becomes easier every time I try it now, will have some wet wipes with me next time for some spot glass cleaning if necessary, as I will keep behind a thick layer of glass when shooting these animals.

Have an amazing day!

Both @ArtTurtle and @Artopium (and perhaps soon @thejollyroger) are being needlessly downvoted by themarkymark. The more the delegator bots
are downvoted the less they will be able to upvote your content so this is an indirect attack on you! This is happening out of
pure vindictiveness as you know these bots are not spam and are powered by your steem power. Please help out by upvoting this comment
in order to counteract themarkymark's downvotes. Then please use your new downvote pool to downvote themarkeymark. He is a witness
and is abusing his power as such. Please unvote him for witness here.
He creates blacklists of thousands of Steemians he deems "inappropriate". I believe he is a majority cause for the drop in
the price in steem as he wrecklessly downvotes random content causing people to want to leave Steemit. Since he has over 500,000 SP
he can do quite a bit of damage, so it's going to take a concerted effort to get him to stop. Thank you!
