Any time you are bored and would like to take pics of other species .... you know where I live. Hint. These are great pics.

Awesome pics and even better subjects! What do you use as your white back ground /set? I can just make out the corners in the full body pic of the chenyei. Well done!

Any of the Canon Prime lenses will take pictures like this. And that 100mm is very nice! You should save a bit and get the 200mm L series for when you're out and about. Fixed Focal Length for the win!!

VERY nice pictures Mitton. Nice snakes too
The sky has many holes
These holes are very small
That is why rain is so thin
Thank you

I just used the built-in flash, I tried the bigger clip-on flash but it looked crappy.
