These snakes belong to a friend of mine.  The orange male is Taipan, the grey/brown female is Little Face.  I’ve never done snake or reptile photography, so my mate’s letting me use his snakes as guinea pigs.  Difficulties abound with the lighting and location, hopefully I’ll learn a lot while hanging with these darlings.

So rude… chewing with his mouth open!

They are fed dead mice, which they constrict then swallow whole.  It’s an amazing spectacle.  I want to go somewhere I can shoot a big constrictor swallowing a gnu or something else sizeable.
