NOT what you want to see when setting up your shot!

I was out tonight in the rain doing some nighttime landscapes, and as I climbed a wall I looked down and had quite a shock.



This is a bamboo viper.  Their bites are rarely fatal but the wound gets ugly really fast. Forgive me for not filling the frame with the subject; I didn't want to come home with a chunk of my body dead.

Be safe out there!

Yikes! Just out of curiosity, where was this?

This was in Taroko National Park in Taiwan, specifically at "100 Lions Bridge" near the east entrance. The park is stunning; I'd highly recommend it, despite my recent misadventure there.

Glad we don't have that particular critter around here!

Actually imported snake meat is considered a delicacy and quite costly. Blind'm with your flash, jack-boot his little head, sell'm in town and your trip is paid for. But, you might want to sleep with the lights on as most snakes travel with a harem of snakettes ! And pleaaassseee no bite me jokes!
