My entry for the 7 DAYS MACRO-PHOTOGRAPHY CHALLENGE #2 by @flamingirl (#1 - Little Snake)

in photography •  3 months ago

I want to submit this snake photo to the challenge.

Despite the fact that in the photo this snake seems large, in fact it was a small snake. I photographed it from a distance of about 15 cm.

The history of this photo is very interesting. In the country house of my parents there is a garden. In this garden there is a large flower garden. Our children saw how the snake crawled in this flower garden. Then several adults surrounded her to see.

Not seeing the direction in which she can escape the snake decided to climb a tall flower.

When she got out and began to watch us, I approached her with the camera and took this picture.

After a small photo shoot, we stepped aside and allowed this snake to creep into nature. After all, we knew that this snake is not poisonous and does not pose a danger to people.

And here is a proof that this picture was made by me. I'm not sure if it's enough. And I have a RAW file if it will be necessary.

Nikon D5000 + Sigma AF 17-50 + Closeup lens

I strongly recommend to open the photo in a separate tab to appreciate it.

Great shot @boddhisattva.
I wouldn't dare come that close to a snake poisonous or not poisonous.


Thank you! 8)
Thanks to the desire to make an interesting picture, I did not think about the danger at the time 8)))

Nice shot! Coincidentally I found a snake just like that one tonight-- a ringneck snake


Thank you! In Russia we call it 'uj'. In English it's a Grass snake, as I found in wiki.


Oh; I think you're right. Your photo is very close up, I thought it was the same but they are a bit different.

This is the one I found:



I see similarities but they have different markings 🐍


Wow! She's so small! 8))
My snake was bigger 8)

Woww .. this is scary ..

Thank you! 8)

Excellent photography! You are very brave to get that close to the snake, poisonous or not! @boddhisattva The only way I would attempt this would be if there
was a thick pane of glass separating us!🐍


Thank you, @ninahaskin! 8)
I would hardly have decided to make friends with this creature if it were not for my passion for photography. In life, I do not really like insects, reptiles and amphibians 8)))

Excellent shot! What a lovely snake!


Thank you very much, @mweich! It was a lucky moment to make this shot 8)

Great capture, as per usual. Who doubts the great @boddhisattva?!


You overestimate me 8))
Thanks for the kind words!


hehe, you underestimate your eye ;)
