[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On my last trip to the Amboro National Park, we found this small snake, who was crossing the road. Luckily the driver saw it. He even got it their hands. He said it was not a venomous specie. As you can see on the image. A few minutes later, the snake was put on a safer place, and we continued our trip.

Shh! Shh! Watch out! Brrrrr! ;-)
Strange photo, but I prefer see it in the place where you saw it, not in hands! No technical opinion I give! But this is a different shot Gabriel!
Btw, unfortunately I used flash on that photo, as I always did it ;-)
Best regards,

This is really a tiny snake ! I have never seen any that small. I would have preferred to see him in his natural environment, but with the fingers we can see his size. Well done !

Wow! Little tiny, but still a snake! Very nice to see! Nice lights, making some kind of neon effects on the snake. TFS!

que bonita macro.... bonitas cores, composição, luz. Acho que não era capaz de arragar a cobra assim .... sou muito medricas....
Thanks ana:)

Hi Gabriel,
well presented snake - in every way.
And a good story to go with.
Pleasant and charming contribution.
Thank you! Best regards,

Knowing my luck it would be a baby Black Momba and the driver would laguh when I went into shock! Great capture (physically and by camera) I like the sense of scale you have given it. Thanks for sharing.
