Challenge #34 in the Txabi's Challenges series. Hosted by txabi.
Challenge has finished
As an urbanite, I have never, ever seen a snake in real life, up close. Thus, to satisfy my and surely others' curiosity, I challenge you to submit your best pictures of snakes!! I would be scared of them in real life, but via DPR my monitor protects me from their dangers while allowing me to study them :D
