Another beautiful Jameson's

I caught this 1.8m female Dendroaspis jamesoni jamesoni while she was comfortably stretched out on a razor wire fence on the perimeter of a site being cleared for a residential housing project here in Northern Angola.

That is an amazing specimen! Lovely pics! That black on yellow of the tail is the clincher for me. Kudos HH

Thanks for the further complements. Jamesoni are one of my favorite species to work with and a great photo subject too.
