Small World Winner: Vine Snake

Vine snake
(Robin Moore)
“I was scrambling through bushes, wading up streams, and looking for anything scaly or slimy in one of the most bio-diverse forests in the world when we came across this vine snake. I was lying on my stomach to frame the shot when, as if on cue, a fly buzzed down and used the snake’s head as a landing pad. As soon as I clicked the shutter, the fly departed. Some photos come about through careful and diligent planning, but this one was about being in the right place at the right time.” - Photographer Robin Moore
