A Plot

A film would play whether people are watching or not; this seemed right to a thin long snake far atop a tree. Its story continued when my macro lens was in action.
 
The effect, I know, would not be magnetic as the pictures taken were heavily cropped, though a mosquito was involved later.
 
But this would be dramatic if the bent proboscis of the mosquito could be visible, (ah, biting a wrong target) and best used by a storyteller.
 
It presence was never felt somehow, otherwise the snake would be sorry for being born without a pair of hands.

Cool shots of the snake, Rainfield. The bokeh is gorgeous. I would have to smack that mosquito. Have a happy weekend!

I can't believe you saw that moment, and not only that captured it with your camera. Better the mosquito bite the snake than you! (I'm more afraid of mosquitos than I am of snakes in some ways.)

It was meant to be!!

Your first photo is fantastic -- both are marvelous. You have a great eye (and talent) to see and capture this action.

Diane AZ said...

Now I have seen everything and I am glad to have hands!

Emma Springfield said...

Besides being such a marvelous story teller, you are a wonderful photographer. The picture of the mosquito on the snake should become a classic.

A snake knows its role and does not have to rehearse although this mosquito might need some practice.

Nancy said...

What a great picture you caught of this snake...amazing!!

Nancy Claeys said...

I would want to pick up that snake and investigate more closely!

Naqvee said...

Hey.. That's an intelligent story to go with the pictures. If I had the opportunity to shoot.. I would have better run for my life..

It's a great subject for macro photo session but don't get too near, things could turn unpredictable

Cher said...

lol, the snake is sure sorry for not having a pair of hands to "clap" and punish the mosquito.

EG CameraGirl said...

I think I would have missed seeing the mosquito if you hadn't mentioned it. :)

Freya Renders said...

Always a pleasure to visit your blog and see your beautiful captures.

Ratty said...

I just had to tell you how wonderful that first picture is. The second one is good too, but that first one caught a special moment.

Sharkbytes said...

Hmm- would a mosquito bite a cold-blooded creature? Very strange.

Harshi said...

Should I say lucky mosquito or poor snake? :D Either way it's a wonderful capture of an unusual encounter!
