Wow! Great pictures again. They are probably one one the most beautiful snakes I have seen but as far as I know, they are poisonous aren't they?
Hey Joan, thank you. Yes, they are venomous.
Thanks for the info. Keep up posting these great pictures!!
welcome. Thank you
Here is a 100% crop
Whoa. Coolest photos. And tack sharp, as the crop shows!!!
Where did you see these? You don't KEEP them, do you? (It is not allowed to keep venemous snakes in Germany unless you have "gone to school" for it and got yourself some sort of licence).
I quite like the second one here with its tongue out. I keep trying to capture our snakes like that, but it is only a matter of good luck if I get a photo of the kind. No skill. Just luck.
Hi Lafoto. As much as I love snakes, I never try to keep them. I found these (there were two) on my hike. I love snakes, so I'm constantly on the look-out for them. Good luck, be careful
If you like snakes and don't mind "tough" photos, you might like this (older) thread of mine - and scroll, or else you miss photos that show further towards the bottom of that one:
And maybe also this one?
(Beware: with my threads there often also is some reading to do, not only looking at pictures ).
Nicely done. I really like snakes myself and have had a few from time to time as they rehabilitate. Funny thing (maybe not so) is over the past couple of years I haven't seen any. I live on a farm where blacks, garters, kings, copperheads and water moccasins (cottonmouths) were abundant, but the visible population has certainly dwindled. Snakes are handy creatures to have on a farm.
Wow, those are super shots! The harmonious colours in the first, with the focus on the snake's head, makes for a really pleasing shot. And good job getting it with its tongue flicking out! How 'close' were you to it?
Thanks for sharing. Great images there.
