A beautiful image You must have a monster of a lense to be able to get these closeups
Rory Ingle: Hi Jennie thanks but I actually took the shot with my S95 pocket camera, the snake is in a glass enclosure, I avoided using flash so no reflection off the glass as a result.

Reminds me - I caught a boomslang in Jan this year.
Beautiful detail in this picture.
Rory Ingle: thanks Louis I must say the green is quite astonishing.
Stunning Shot Rory, Still don't like 'em though.
Rory Ingle: yeah I understand, but the colour is something to marvel at.
Great colour green but not a favourite animal of mine.
Rory Ingle: yes not a favourite of many but interesting to behold nevertheless.
What a great shot Rory. Fantastic color.
Rory Ingle: Thanks Frances, it is the greenest snake I have ever come across.

Whew! If you are shooting glass-enclosed creatures, I am less concerned for your safety! :o)
Rory Ingle: Thanks Jennie that is very sweet of you smile
Now if you didn't know these last 2 pix had snakes that could kill you... we'd think they were cool... oh well... the pix are for sure!! ... (I once had a 20 + foot python hanging over my neck and shoulders at a nature centre. But there were 2 peops luckily holding both ends.)
Rory Ingle: That was brave of you, a python can give one a nasty bite (not likely), plus they have been known to kill their owners, a guide line exists on how many keepers should enter a python enclosure depending on it's length.
Another beautiful snake- terrific image!
