The man has quite boyish charms as he caresses the snake in a kind of dance. What really captures my eye is the way that the shadows of the leafless tree cast an ominous cobweb like presence over the photo. Then in the foreground there is a netting that is somehow supposed to protect the viewer from an escaped python.
This is a terrific colour photo that all takes place in shades of maroon. I really like this.
