Viper

So... this was supposed to be a shot of lovely holiday lights at the zoo. Something festive, to get us in the holiday spirit. The lights were uninspiring. I had much more visual fun in the herpetarium. Luckily, there was thick glass between this venomous snake and my camera. I really enjoyed his focused stare.

Happy holidays. I'll try to find something more thematic later. :). Thanks for visits, as you have time.
Great shot to capture this stare!

This is awesome. Such detail
December 15th, 2014  
wow that is an awesome encouter with him staring like that! love it!

He's a handsome chap and you've got the focus spot on, not always easy through glass. I think you made the right decision, the residents are much more interesting than the illuminations.

Great shot, especially through glass. Spot on focus

Oh wow! What a stunning capture! Snakes kinda freak me out though, and it actually looks like this one is coming through the screen.

I'm just going to pretend that's a smile on his face! Great capture. Once you've seen the lights at the Gardens the Zoo doesn't quite compare.

Great capture! Nice focus, they are hard to get just right, I've tried a few times, both in the wild and the zoo.
