Great job managing to get that whole snake in the frame, Ken. Focus and depth of field are perfect, and I like the composition. You might darken or clone over that bright out of focus branch in the upper left corner.

Nice detail in the owl and its prey. Amazing how they can turn their heads like that; nice you were able to catch that.

Excellent shot, Ken. Wonderful detail in the owl as well as the snake. I am also amazed how far the owl can turn his head around.

Hi Ken,

I like your comp. The lighting has a nice warm feel to it and quite frankly, I would leave this one as is…Jim
