Green vine snakes of­ten ven­ture near houses in the mon­soon sea­son, in this case just a few me­tres from my front door, at­tracted by the many lizards and frogs in my gar­den. They will wait for prey with divine con­cen­tra­tion; this one was im­per­son­at­ing a plant and was even sway­ing in the breeze. Only in the past two or three years have I learned to iden­tify them amid a mass of green. Nikon D5000, Nikon AF-S DX 85mm f/3.5G ED VR Macro, 1/400 sec, f/6.3, ISO200
