      great photo !
      Its reputation for being deadly is overblown. The only person who was ever killed by a blue ring picked it up and put it on his shoulder to pose for a picture. The blue ring bit him and injected poison into the guys spinal cord. So what do we do - demonize the blue ring !?!?
