Beauty and the Viper On the same tree that this Pit Viper was resting, there was an Orchid plant that has fallen from the tree above, it has managed to 'grow' on the small tree and there was a single flower left on its flower stalk. I didn't even noticed the tiny Orchid on the first day I found this Snake as I was more focused on it but when I showed the Snake to JD member ChunXingWong 2 days later, he noticed the tiny Orchid while we were taking turns to take the pic. We had lots of fun taking pics of both the Snake and Orchid. Malaysia,Pit Viper,Popeia sabahi,Sabah,Sabah Pit Viper,Snake,Viper Click/tap to enlarge Promoted
