3d pan white

Bitis gabonica (Gaboon viper, Gabunviper)

Haus der Natur, Oct 21st 2007

 

Canon 5D with Sigma 105/2,8 Macro

1/80s f/4 ISO 1250 -1EV

through glass, no tripod, no flash

 

The snake with the longest fangs of all (up to 5cm!) and an absolutely lethal venom if biten and not treated.

 

And one of the most frustrating to shoot. Usually they don't move an inch the whole day long ...
