Consarn it, ya dirty low-down Sidewinder!

Post by Mike B in OKlahoma »


You can see a bit of his rattle through the gap near the center of the coils. I wish his distinctive horns stood out better, and did a selective contrast boost to try to improve things. Helped some, but not as much as I wanted.

If I had this to do over again, I'd put the snake at the left side of the image here, and leave the sand as negative space to his right.

Well I don't know :-k , it sure looks comfortable all wadded up like that. Just wait'n to bite you though I bet. A rather pretty snake though, if there is such a thing, blends in with itself quite well. :D

Yep, he blends in very well I would say. Beautiful pattern on the scales. I would have to say, with all the pattern blending on this creature, it would be very hard to capture his horns from this angle.
