Default Emerald Tree Boa

Here's a couple of shots of one of my favourite snakes . . . . the emerald tree boa.








Best regards,

Why thank you kindly sir! I appreciate your comments very much. These were taken hand-held through glass. The first shot was taken at 1/16 second thanks to the IS on my Canon 100mm 2.8 IS lens which I absolutely love.

Best regards,
Jason

Those are incredible pictures, the second one is stunning. I've been looking at SLR cameras the last few days and photos like these are why, absolutely stunning.

Thanks very much Joe. From looking at your avatar though I'm thinking you might be a little biased because of the subject matter! lol
My interest in photography didn't progress until I bought my first DSLR. That's when I started to learn about using various shutter speeds, apertures and ISO settings to achieve different effects. The most important thing to learn is how to use light. That's what photography is all about. I'm no expert in this area at all but I am keen to learn. Having a DSLR won't instantly give you great photos but it does give you far more control and versatility than a compact camera.

Best regards,
Jason

Absolutely beautiful shots of one of my favourite species. You definitely have some outstanding photography skills, may I ask what is your weapon of choice ? I am a Nikon man

Thank you both very much for your comments. I use a Canon 40D with the Canon 100mm Macro 2.8L IS lens. When fund permit I'll upgrade to the Canon 7D but my 40D is still going strong after 40,000+ shots.

Best regards,
Jason

Well I guess the quality isn't bad for a Canon
That first shot especially is just stunning.
