Trust in Me..

In the remote Rara Avis nature reserve (accessible only by tractor or horseback), Costa Rica, this well camouflaged parrot snake stayed completely still while I observed and photographed it. The dense tropical rainforest, while extremely high in biodiversity, can be a very difficult place to spot such beautiful creatures.
