Another photo I took of the BIG and BEAUTIFUL bushmaster we found in the Peruvian Amazon. The demeanor of this snake was more along the lines of curious. Every angle I would get for a photo, the snake would turn his head to the direction I’m sitting at. Photographing the animal on the path made things easier. This bushmaster was actually sitting right on the side of the trail. Plenty of wildlife uses man-made trails for navigation and hunting. Snakes, such as this bushmaster, can be seen sitting right on, and even in the middle of the trail. They will be coiled up, watching, and waiting for a rodent to get too close. This bushmaster was upwards of 8 feet! This is the longest species of viper in the world, and the largest venomous snake in the Western Hemisphere! Photographed with a Nikon D750, SB800 flash, and 105mm macro lens. If you enjoy my photos, please follow my page!
