Work in progress.  Green tree boa - working on a print and down rez it.  Sharpening set for a print, not a screen/web.  In other words, I know it over sharpened.
Trust in me; just in me...
:)

I love the colour. Fabulous!

Thanks - I will be submitting this in competition soon.  "Trust in Me" or similar is an interesting title
I always liked Jungle Book and would see it again at the drop of a hat!

For a second, it reminded me of an aquarium.  With their circular peaks into the life of a fish...

I like the shot.  Did you rent the underwater equipment to keep the body and the lens dry?

One of my best shots. At least for yesterday..  ;)
I managed to annoy a Red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris) by not moving out of its way and insisting to stick around and photograph him/her.
To have an opinion is easy. To have a reputation is much harder; at least if you want a good one.

Was the national anthem being played while you photographed him?

He has his hand to his heart!

*lol* Well, there is a football stadium a few hundred meters away, but nothing spectacular was going on there in the afternoon.
The only thing that was playing was the beat from my shutter firing away, and some Blackbirds singing in the background. Nothing much to get all teary-eyed for.
I'm just happy he/she didn't go for my nuts.  :o

 For lies perpetrated by his relative Punxsutawney Phill on February 02 , and encroaching on my property I declare a sentence of banishment if he is ensnared in the live trap or death if I see him foraging in my yard while I have easy access to a gun.
Either way he's a marked dirtpig .

 The next time he gets shot, it will not be with a camera !

Great shot of a red squirrel,

Nice to see some shots of squirrels where they are not being torn apart by some bird.

It was a bad month for squirrels on CR in March  ;D

Thanks Sporgon! I tend to shoot live birds and animals. Prefer to have them alive before, during and after my photo sessions.
Yeah Brian, I noticed those tufts too, and can't remember seeing such big ones before on any Red squirrel. I'm just guessing, but it could perhaps be a leftover from the rather long and cold, icy, winter we've had here.
