A neonate Greater Green (Cyclophiops major) on a fresh taro leaf - it don't get no greener than that. Again, I am indebted to the four little old ladies mentioned in the dinosaur post, who kept the leaf from flapping in the wind, the snake from hauling ass, and me from a nervous breakdown in the face of the Sisyphean task of shooting an unruly snake the size of a bootstring at 1:1 magnification :crazyeyes: (Afterwards, one of the old girls even folded my snake bags and tucked them neatly into my backpack, while another one absent-mindedly brushed the dirt off my snake hook and tongs. Two well-trained grandmothers, to be sure.)

The fact that you got clear shots of that is very impressive. That reminds me of trying to take a photo of a forearm-long giant centipede with only a 3X optical zoom compact, as it was trying to bite my face. =S

Great shot, Hans! These guys have always reminded me a little of Opheodrys.
