Could you give us details on how you manage to get a photo like that. Very impressive (the photo & the subject)

Hi Yannick, I was staying in Selva lodge and the previous night we had a torrential rain that lasted for hours. The next day the staff of the lodge called me and told me an anaconda was crossing from a swamp to that lagoon you see in the picture. I ran with my camera equipment, I actually wanted to use two flashes but one of them ran out of battery.... Then I got inside the water with the anaconda and when the sun came out she started to bask on the log... with the help of a friend who carried the flash I got this

Amazing ! Thanks for the story

Amazing the flash didn't affect the snake since they have no eyelids and it's impossible to know if they're sleeping or not!

Fearless! I don’t think I could have waded into water like you. Wonderful capture.
