This shot is nothing compared to Aussie shooter's. It's just that my little garter snake happened to present a reflection and be in water that made me think of posting it this moment. I spent about 10 minutes getting many shots of this guy that day and was quite tickled given I didn't even know garter snakes liked to swim.:confused:

I also was quite surprised how different angles presented the water colour so differently, especially how the green May leaves affected it.

Very nice, but I'm more interested in the "workshop" than the photo. ;) Have you considered working on this to make the head stand out just a little better? Just a thought from someone who is no expert.

I have and am still playing around with it but due to the fact I was teaching more than shooting my composition was off by an inch or two and his head is positioned just slightly wrong. But I will certainly have a go and post the 'hopefully' improved version.
Ps. Love the Garter snake. They are quite a cool looking snake
