Yeah, I wish they were mine. He's got a bunch of other nice stuff I wish was mine as well. Hopefully next year we'll have a couple breeding projects going on, so maybe I can get into some of these nice animals the easy way: by whoring out my snakes to him. :mrgreen:

Snakes are fun subjects to shoot, and species like the GTPs at the top like to sit very still, which makes them even better subjects. If I could ever get my hands on the geckos I want I'd start posting some nice gecko pics too :!: :?

Nikon D70 dSLR
Tamron 90mm macro lens (that's what lets me get so close to the subjects)
Sigma ring flash (that's what makes the colors come out nice)

I was shooting in aperature mode at F8, about an inch or so from the subject in those top two pictures.

Very nice Ryan! That ring flash seems to be treating you right! Cant go wrong with that D70 either, my favorite body so far. Keep 'em coming!
