Great place called "Cruid's pit" (= Druids pit?) in south Italy, W of Avellino.



It's time to let it go:



I hope you like them. It's only late March and a few snakes have already "awaken".

Maybe some of you hate them, but i like to capture snake since I was young, and now the season is starting: You'll see many in these months from me and my FZ20.

PS I used the Polarizer in the first pic to achieve slower shutter speed (on a tripod).

The following one is with a IR action in Photoshop 7.

Very nice shots. Did you use an add-on macro lens for the close-ups of the snake?

Thanks to all.



No Rduve no macro lens, I still don't have the 6T.
I actually caught the snake and held it for a ten minutes during which I and a friend did take a huge number of shots.

Hence I could also get very close to it to take few cm macros.
A few more here:

Great Shots! Though I prefer not to be too close with snakes :-)
