Thanks everyone. I didn't use a zoom lens for this shot. My lens was actually about 3 inches from the snakes eye. The perfect focal distance for the macro attachment lens.

Well, you must have nerves of steel or a good glass between you...I would have had glass.
Aug 03 2007 05:13 GMT Cascavel
No glass. Just years of working with these animals and a sense of what is safe and not.

I love macros, but that's a little too close for comfort for me...be careful!!! Living life on the dangerous side there... This is a very awesome shot though..

Brilliant shot.

I know my limits when it comes to these animals. I assure you my fingers were not in strike distance of this girl but thanks for the concern BFSF.

Hey Ali! Good to see ya.

Amazing shot, I have snakes myself, but not sure I would get that close to a rattler!!
Oct 04 2007 22:23 GMT Cascavel
Yeah it's probably a good idea not to.
