The snake is really the master of take-away food. For some reason I find the view of that folded back front foot as the snake swallows the rat, quite sad. More so than if we could just see the disappearing back end.

Gavin, a bit sad, but a good nature story-telling image.

Well done- really shows the drama of life and death. I am always amazed at how much a snake can swallow-this definitely tells the story.
