as we prepare to enter the year of the snake, i thought it would be appropriate to revisit some of what are not just my favorite snake images of all time, but also just one of my favorite photographic series in general. serpens is the study by french photographer guido mocafico that highlights the gorgeous colors, textures, and shapes found in our controversial reptilian friends. i have never been one of those people that completely loves or hates snakes. however, while i truly appreciate their immense beauty and strength, i don't necessarily need them to be anywhere close to me either. so thank you guido, for letting me get up close and personal with these creatures without having to actually get up close and personal. see more of his fabulous work here.
