Thank you Ivan.
"As I recorded this. To be honest, accidentally, and here's how it was. I am in one artificial lake in the center of Zrenjanin (which is neglected), on the shore of filming dragon flies to lay their eggs in water. And as I was crouched and motionless and silent, suddenly the deeper water is something surfacing it was this snake fishing with this fish. I was delighted by the sight and immediately turned my lens afotoaparata that way and made the first recording, this is where the snake swims with fish. It was very quick and I was able to do just that video and the next was already taken when the snake arrived on shore. I did not know that the snake be prey to bring the water to the shore, only to be swallowed. All this took place very close to me. When it was presented to the shore, I began to photograph, and she heard the sound of the camera and then I noticed and went to a few meters in a reed, and then I watched what happens. Then she turned the fish for a while until she succeeded in her head stuffed in his mouth, ITAD I approached the little creature that's nice how could I record. I hope I have translators, because I do not speak English, and you will be able to read this. Best Regards - Ivan. "

Kako sam ovo snimio.Da budem iskren,slućajno i evo kako je bilo.Ja sam na jednom veštačkom jezeru u samom centru gradaZrenjanina(koje je zapušteno),na samoj obali snimao viline konjice kako u vodu polažu jaja.I kako sam bio sagnut i nepomičan i tih,odjednom iz dublje vode je nešto izronulo,to je bila ova zmija ribarica sa ovom ribom.Bio sam oduševljen prizorom i odmah okrenuo objektiv mog afotoaparata na tu stranu i napravio prvi snimak,to je taj gde zmija pliva sa ribom.To je bilo jako brzo i uspeo sam da napravim samo taj snimak,a sledeći je već bio snimljen kada je zmija stigla na obalu.Nisam znao da zmija treba svoj plen da donese iz vode na obalu, da bi ga progutala.Sve se to odigravalo jako blizu mene.Kada ga je iznela na obalu,ja sam počeo da fotografišem,i ona je čula zvuk fotoaparata i tada me je primetila i otišla nekoliko metara u trsku i tada sam posmatrao šta če se desiti.Onda je ona okretala ribu jedno vreme dok nije uspela da joj glavu strpa u usta, itada sam prišao malo biže da to lepo koliko je mogle snimim.Nadam sa da imate prevodilaca,jer ja ne znam engleski,i da ćete ovo moći da pročitate.Srdačan pozdrav Ivan
