    Nqjudo, wow, which tele you used for that snake image? I read it in wikipedia this is indeed dangerous and aggressive http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bothrops_asper, but not as fatal as some other spices http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crotalus_durissus

    I personally hate snakes of any kind

    Would you be unimpressed if I said I had a pet one? 2 year old corn snake. Perfectly harmless, very cute, and low maintenance pet. Good talking point as well unless you talk to someone immature.

    Gintaras - I used the 70-200 fop that particular shot. I often use the Canon 100 macro for shooting snakes - even venomous ones. A snake will almost always strike the closest point so if they strike it will be almost without fail at the end of the lens. The Fer de Lance is an exception because it is a pit viper. It has a small sensory 'pit' between the eye and the nostril which is sensitive to heat. If you get up in a Fer de Lance's face with a camera it is entirely likely that he will strike beyond the camera at your hand because of your body heat - and they can strike much farther than most people would believe. You are indeed correct - they are not the most venomous snakes around but they are so deadly because there is so much contact between them and humans. For example the most venomous snake in South America is arguably the bushmaster but people rarely get bit by or even see them because they flee humanity and lack the aggressive nature of the Fer de Lance.

    Paradox - Corns make wonderful pets and they can be strikingly beautiful as well. I wouldn't mind seeing some pictures if you have any.
    The respect of those you respect is greater than the applause of the multitude.

    At the moment photos are lacking because I haven't been able to get a suitable plant to get some nice ones in. Hopefully soon I can get him out in the garden and snap a few.

    Pit Viper

    I felt the current snake theme would permit a bit of a cheat. This is from a Canon SLR but is a scan from print on my old 35mm (with 28-200 sigma lens). I was trekking in Borneo and nearly grabbed this guy to pull myself up a steep slope. We were about 500 mils from the nearest anything so I guess I was lucky to not get bitten! Our guide said it was a pit viper, but I'm happy to be corrected by any herpetologists out there. Excuse the awful photo, this was back in my point and click days.
