|The Green vine snake (Ahaetulla nasuta), is a slender green tree snake found in India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.|
The green vine snake is diurnal and mildly venomous. The reptile normally feeds on frogs and lizards using its binocular vision to hunt. They are slow moving, relying on camouflaging as a vine in foliage. The snake expands its body when disturbed to show a black and white scale marking. Also, they may open their mouth in threat display and point their head in the direction of the perceived threat.

welcome to TN
great start with perfect prortrait of nice snake with great pose and perfect sharpness on head
Being a snake handler myself, I can really appreciate your exposure!! A beautiful capture with striking green colours. The sharpness and details are explicit my friend. I like the shallow DOF. The South African vine snake looks similar but have a variation of colours. It is back fanged the same as our (boom slang) and there is no anti-venom available yet for the vine/twig snake. Excellent capture.
YIKES...great contrast with green and pink my friend looks like a bristly tongue or pink TEETH! DANG great shot!
Great shot of a fantastic reptile.
Well done. TFS
