23 Fantastic and Colourful Photographs of Snakes

Share: 

While snakes can often present a great opportunity for getting a great and colourful photograph, the downside is that we usually don't want to get too close! These photographers overcame that fear and really showed us what can be done with a little bravery and photographic skill!

Hi,

A “deadly” collection of hissing beauties. I could listen it. Colours?, yes I was pale with fear.

Are these REALLY taken coming close enough to the snakes? I do not think that is a great approach here unless one is an expert snake handler. My humble request is please stop glamorising this “coming close to take photograph” approach. Novices can get challenged at this suggestion and may not live to see that great photo they took! Sad but true and I do not want that to happen to ANYBODY.

Though I said what moved me I congratulate these photographers for their bravery and skills demonstrated here.

The best one I liked is the Green Tree Python by Nasmac. What a mean look! If Look can kill then this is it. The pose is perfect.

Thanks and best regards.

Snakes may be snippy,but they sure are
snappy looking! Impressed – the designer deserves great credit for the beauty of the work!
