    This is a Green Palm viper (Bothriechis marchii) that I found in Cusuco National Park in Honduras this past summer. I spent two months there this summer as a biologist and this is one of the photos I returned with. C&C welcome.

    i'm new to photography but i i think i would like the photo much more if it was shot in the day time but i'm sure you didn't choose when you got to take the photo haha and the flash seems a little to intense for me but over all with the lighting sercomestances i love the photo i like how sharp the eye is...........i want your job ;)

    A very nice capture - I like how the snake stands out from the background.. The flash/lighting looks just a tad too much.

    Very nice, but I agree with what others have said about the lighting; it does seem a bit harsh.

    EEEEEEKKKKK, *leighthal runs off and slowly recovers

    Super nice photo. You are either brave or serious drunk to want to be that close. 157mm would need a few zeros added to it for me to match your bravery. Took a look at your flickr site..... LOVE the 88 butterfly. You should post it here as well.
