I cannot believe you were never into nature, your photographs show true beauty and the magic of this world! You are an inspiration to others. Thank you so much for sharing and giving ever one the chance to see nature first hand, especially when it is impossible to see for our selves first hand, this is the closest some will get.

Hi mate, we love your photographs. We are currently setting up an adventure website and require photographs - we are not a big company and are having trouble sourcing decent inexpensive photographs. Could we possibly get some original jpegs from you to use on our website.

Once again thanks for the comments.
Manu Redneck, I am not sure why the locals react the way they do to snakes especially as there are so few that are actually dangerous. I assume it is to do with eggs and chicks etc. Anyway I personally find them amazing and hope you like the pic on the "animals" page. Incidentally my bulgarian friend wouldn,t come any where near it and offered me a lump of wood which I declined.
Thanks for viewing.
