message this message is importantGreat image, Brent! I love the B&W and the composition! For me it is always hard to focus sea snakes with the Canon lenses I use. Thank you for sharing!

message Thanks Tobi. To be honest, this photo was the very first encounter I had with a sea snake. The snake was hunting and paused for just a moment to allow me to get a quick photo with it's eye focused. I quickly learned how fortunate I was to get this photo as I had six more sea snake encounters through the week and realized how hard it is to photograph sea snakes. They are lightning fast and incredibly difficult to shoot. I appreciate your comments and agree the black and white is great with the stripes of the snake.
