Almost missed this small snake that was elegantly draped on an oil palm stem sunning itself. It took two glances and a peek through the view finder to confirm that my eyes weren't playing tricks on me. It looked like a strand of dried palm leaf.As I didn't have a macro lens with me I couldn't really capture the features of this small snake to determine species. The telephoto lens just couldn't pick out features with such a small snake. When I went closer to take a look the snake roused from its stupor and slithered away.
