I hope Robelyn enjoyed her snake-free time! It's over!
What I like most about this photo is the narrow depth of field (DOF). The snake is in sharp focus, but the grass in front of and behind the snake is a soft blur, putting all the more emphasis on the snake, especially its face. There's a nice buttery bokeh above and behind the snake's head and I really like the green and tan colors for a backdrop. If there is such a thing as a portrait shot of a snake, I think this is it!
For the photographers among you who may be interested in the particulars, I shot this at 100 ISO, 70mm focal length, 1/1000 shutter speed and f/2.8 aperture.
Hope you have a super weekend!
