12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Yellow Eyelash Viper

Taken in Cahuita National Park, Costa Rica, the yellow eyelash viper is one of the Americas' deadliest snakes. Eyelash vipers come in different colours, but this yellow one was the most beautiful one I had ever seen. The yellow is an wonderful and pleasing contrast to the green surroundings of the forest.
