SNAKES OF THE THAILAND RAINFOREST, PART 2


Banded Pit Viper
D5, 105 2,8, f/4,0, 1/200, ISO 1800

This is my second post on Thailand snakes from September 2016. The Thailand rainforest is really a "Snake Heaven" with almost 200 different species.  During our 2 weeks of "rainforest deep dive" in the rainy Monsoon period we found 22 species of snakes, which is in fact more than 10 % of the total number of species !
A great .... and extremely wet ... experience

Once again : A warm thank you to Thor Håkonsen, Ton Smits & "Aood" Parinya

  1. Fantastiske slangebilder. Blir helt hekta her jeg sitter å beundrer disse spennende skapningene.
    Herlige farger og spennende positurer.

  2. Ekstremt gode bilder av slangene! Lys, positurer og bakgrunner, du har nok jobba litt for de der! Det nest siste bildet var interessant å se, ikke lett for et byttedyr å se at greinene også består av en slange! Men igler og giftige småkryp, og vått i dagesvis, kunne umulig være en fornøyelse! Tøff du som utsetter deg for sånt! :-)
