Wow great job capturing the color but even more mesmerized by the eye - it's such a great clear shot & it almost looks gold. :wow:

I love this shot! We had these at my old Reptile shop, the only snake that would eat crickets rather than mammals.

They are so VERY small, it's hard for people to tell that from the shot, though. Hehe.

Great job, it's clear and beautiful.

that is a beautiful shot of the snake, dude. I love the angle, and how vibrant of shade of green that snake is. awesome job!

How gorgeous!
Don't get me wrong, I love all snakes, but I love the green snakes because they are so long and so thin. I remember finding a green snake on a path, catching it and showing it to my snakeaphobe friend. She didn't like it, but took pictures of me with it. One of them was of me kissing the snake. XD Probably not the wisest thing to do, but it was so pretty.

And it's real sad that people would kill them. I found a dead one when walking down the road. It's sad because they are harmless little snakes, and people have to be so cruel and just kill them. -_-

I'm glad you love snakes, so few people manage just no to hate them... People tend to fear and hate things they don't understand, and unfortunately snakes, spiders, wolves, sharks and a lot of other creatures are innocent victims to human ignorance.

The Rough Green Snake is not only pretty, but also very gentle and it was a pleasure to photograph it.

Thanks for the :+fav: ! :)

Ah, it's so refreshing to hear someone else say that. I desperately love all snakes, even to the point I terminated some friendships because the person hated snakes irrationally and wouldn't listen when I tried to explain how snakes are just as important as other creatures...
I'm afraid of spiders, but I managed to live with a brown recluse (knowingly) for a few months before it slipped into mom's room and got killed. (*shudder* I would just stand on a chair if it ever came out from behind my bookshelf. XD; ) If I can do that, then anyone can tolerate any creature that they dislike.

You're welcome! ^^

I agree, I took about a hundred pictures of it...
