Am i daft to be excited......

cos I am getting an opportunity that doesnt really come very often...... now I know its not everyones cuppa tea, but i do love getting a chance of photographing something that isnt in your everyday stuff.....

I am getting the chance to shoot both a rattle snake and a monocled cobra.....and it is NOT in a zoo, the cobra because of its speed will need to be in a special box, but the rattler will be open....... OMG I am SOOOOOOO excited I cant wait........

Alans response...." you're on you're own!"

so what do you think am i just mad or stupid?

Re: Am i daft to be excited......

I think it is great to get enthusiastic about anything (provided it is legal, of course!). The source of the enthusiasm will vary from person to person which is what makes the world go round!

Re: Am i daft to be excited......

You go for it Fiona, there's nothing wrong at all about getting exited, and looking at the shots of your own snakes they will be very good can't wait to see the results.
Cheers

Yes but it shouldn't end at the dress rehearsal. Don't get your nose nipped for goodness sake, I'm thinking tele-zoom applies here !!

Re: Am i daft to be excited......

I think you mean Steve irwin
Anyway his problem was he was a reptile expert and messed around out of his expertise with fish. Read....


*
A bright and brash Australian,
the hunter was his name.
All those slimy reptiles
brought him wealth and fame.
Some say he was a looker,
to girls he was a dish.
He knew everything about crocodiles
But **** all about fish.

Fortunately Fiona knows about snakes.

Seems like a good opportunity to me. Go for it. However, be careful with the snakes.

Did you do it already?...

I would LOVE the chance to do that.... just as long as the handler is in the same room as me.....
No I aint scared, but my worry is if the SNAKE gets spooked, what will it do?...

A Friend has an 18ft Burmese Royal back 15 yrs ago, it bothered me none, until she decided my shirt was a good place to take a nap... she weighed in the same as a small adult human...

Re: Am i daft to be excited......

nope am waiting for hte next feeding day in about 3 weeks, ( it not a burmese royal btw its a burmese Python - about 15 ft bigger than royal python ) and they way too big for me to handle.

I wpouldnt want to keep hots ( venemous snakes) but i do like to look at them.

I take my own snakes out to camera clubs etc for people to get the chance to shoot them but obviously with a venemous one that would be a little tricky! lol
