Blue Stripe Garter Snake - Thamnophis sirtalis similis (yes, they are mildly venomous)

Feeling Blue

Actually, this bluestripe garter snake (Thamnophis sirtalis similus) wasn't blue, she was incredibly angry. I don't blame her at all -- I very rudely reached into the weeds and snatched her up to photograph her, and she was most displeased. She let me know of her displeasure by biting me. Repeatedly. But wow was she gorgeous, and worth every drop of lost blood! She was caught in Gainesville, Florida, in Kanapaha Botanical Gardens, and she was released after our photo and biting session.

Wow.. Blue Tree Monitors have the lone tails of any species I know of. ♡

I see infinity sign and a heart for the head. Its the NEON purple grabs me. But PURPLE IS THE ONLY color NOT in snake scales. Digital photos can make anything.

Cobras are some of the most dangerous and venomous snakes found mostly in Africa and Asia. They can range in length from 8 feet to just over 18 feet. According to National Geographic, one bite from a king cobra has enough toxin to kill 20 people or even an elephant. Most cobras, however, are shy and try to stay away from humans.

African Forest cobra

Manipulated image of a Forest cobra (Naja melanoleuca, 1.70m). It was apparently found within the permanent camp of Mikembo (DR Congo, Katanga, January 2014) and killed straight away by a local guide because too dangerous. Received it in the evening and staged it the next day in its defensive position. Reconstructed the damaged parts with GIMP. Canon 5Dmkii, EF17-40mm 1:4L, ISO100, f/9, 1/6sec, natural light (shade). Placed in the album "Illusions" because staged and you'd never come this…
