Taken with a Pentax K7 and Pentax 18-55 lens.  This small snake is found through most of the dry, western and central parts of South Africa.  It spends much time underground, coming out to hunt after dark.  It is venomous.

Very brave shot - using such a small lens...... I'd rather opt for a 500mm with extender......;)

Nice work, Gavin - congrats.
