Slithery Snake Art



Don’t get me wrong. If I see a snake in the wild, I’m not sticking around to admire its beauty. The way they move, their constant tongue usage; it’s all very off-putting believe me. But in a controlled environment, with a professional photographer? What beauty! Incredibly vibrant colours, brilliant patterns and hypnotic skeletal structures make these slithery serpents living works of art. Nobody does it better than nature!
