Viper Gets Ready For Lunch, Iquitos, Amazon Forest...
20-MAY-2007

Viper Gets Ready For Lunch, Iquitos, Amazon Forest...

Death, as they say, occurs 10-20 min after the bite, yet I had 432 mm of reach :-), so , no nose to nose encounters !


other sizes: small medium original

I was really lucky that day, clear shot and miles away from this yellow devil...

He was shaking so badly while staring at me that after our boat passed by there was no more leaves of the tree...

What a stunning beauty! A great shot...terrific colour and detail of those large scales. Has an unusual face too,,,kind of bug-eyed ...but expect he was more frightened of you!

Still you are a hero my friend,because I saw them jump up to 4 meters from a tree into the river ;-)))
Okay,I know,you had your telelens to protect you.

Amigo, I was about 2.5 m away on the boat, and shoot with full extend of my Panasonic at 432 mm focal range with image stabilizer. The snake looks big on the shot, but in fact it's just magnification, it's only 0.5 m in length, yet I would never challenge myself to get to it any closer... Still need to feed family, you know...

Nice colors for this rather deadly snake.
Are you sure you were not 432 meters away from the snake ?????
My Hero !
