Super work as always Kurt. Much of your shooting is an night, but the lighting is very good. How do you light your night shots?

Thanks for looking and commenting, Birdie, film_4ever, Ron.

Birdie - as little as 4 years ago, I was still terrified of snakes! But I made the effort to get to know them better. I love snakes now! This irrational fear has to go. We have been wrongly taught since young that snakes are evil and dangerous by over protective, uninformed parents, adults, teachers etc.

Ron - a diffused 270EX on hotshoe.

Wow! Amazing reptile shots. You get pretty close to some dangerous snakes. The results are superb. Don't see many reptile photos (they're difficult), so please keep posting.
