I like that you have completely filled the frame with the pattern of the snake's body, and that the front bit is sharp. Nice to catch that tongue out as well.

A great close-up of this rattlesnake, and perfect timing to catch its tongue out. Well done, Gavin.

Very nice close up view with excellent detail of the skin patterns and colours. Catching that sensing tongue extended to check you out is a bonus. Well done.

Very nice composition/closeup (Hope you weren't too close!). I like seeing all the patterns and shapes, with the tongue, nostrils and eyes emerging. Well done!
